Case No. 3:19-cv-00310-MMD-WGC

06-10-2019

FRANK MACIAS, Plaintiff v. STATE OF NEVADA et al., Defendants


ORDER

I. DISCUSSION

Plaintiff, who is a prisoner in the custody of the Nevada Department of Corrections ("NDOC"), has submitted a civil rights complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and has filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis. (ECF Nos. 1, 1-1).

Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis is incomplete. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2) and Local Rule LSR 1-2, Plaintiff must complete an application to proceed in forma pauperis and attach both an inmate account statement for the past six months and a properly executed financial certificate on this Court's approved form. Plaintiff has not submitted a properly executed financial certificate on this Court's approved form or an inmate account statement. (See ECF No. 1). As such, the in forma pauperis application is denied without prejudice. The Court will retain Plaintiff's civil rights complaint (ECF No. 1-1), but will not file it until the matter of the payment of the filing fee is resolved. Plaintiff will be granted an opportunity to cure the deficiencies of his application to proceed in forma pauperis, or in the alternative, pay the full filing fee for this action. If Plaintiff chooses to file a new application to proceed in forma pauperis he must file a fully complete application to proceed in forma pauperis.

II. CONCLUSION

For the foregoing reasons, IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis (ECF No. 1) is DENIED without prejudice to file a new application.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court SHALL SEND Plaintiff the approved form application to proceed in forma pauperis by a prisoner, as well as the document entitled information and instructions for filing an in forma pauperis application.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that within thirty (30) days from the date of this order, Plaintiff shall either: (1) file a fully complete application to proceed in forma pauperis, on the correct form with complete financial attachments in compliance with 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a); or (2) pay the full $400 fee for filing a civil action (which includes the $350 filing fee and the $50 administrative fee).

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that if Plaintiff does not timely comply with this order, dismissal of this action may result.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall retain the complaint (ECF No. 1-1), but shall not file it at this time.

DATED: June 10, 2019.
