IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 9, 2012
ROME ROBERT DENNIS,
SOLANO COUNTY JAIL, ET AL., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff, a prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff has not, however, filed a complete application to proceed in forma pauperis, along with a certified copy of his trust account statement for the six-month period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint, or paid the required filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914(a), 1915(a), (a)(2). The application plaintiff filed did include the necessary certification and account statement but it was not signed by plaintiff. Plaintiff will be provided the opportunity to resubmit a signed application, but the court will not require plaintiff to provide another copy of his trust account statement. Plaintiff is warned that failure to resolve the fee status of this case within the time provided may result in the dismissal of this action for lack of prosecution and failure to comply with court rules and orders. See Local Rule 110.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff shall submit on the form provided by the Clerk of the Court, within 30 days from the date of this order, a signed application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis or the appropriate filing fee; and
2. The Clerk of the Court is directed to send plaintiff a new form Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis By a Prisoner.
