IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 28, 2012
STANLEY FINNEY, PLAINTIFF,
SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION, DEFENDANT.
On November 15, 2012, plaintiff, a prisoner without counsel, filed a complaint in this action. To proceed with a civil action a plaintiff must pay the $350 filing fee required by 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a) or request leave to proceed in forma pauperis and submit the affidavit and trust account statement required by 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). Plaintiff has neither paid the fee nor submitted a proper application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis.
On November 26, 2012, plaintiff filed a request for confirmation that his complaint had been filed and an endorsed copy of the complaint. See Dckt. No. 3. Good cause appearing, the Clerk will be directed to send plaintiff a one-time courtesy copy of his complaint filed November 15, 2012.
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff has 30 days from the date of service of this order to submit either the filing fee or the application required by § 1915(a).
2. The Clerk of the Court is directed to mail to plaintiff a form application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis and a copy of his complaint, Dckt. No. 1.
3. Failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.
