Before the court is plaintiff David Wayne Wilson’s
unverified pro se complaint (doc. no. 1), in which he
moves for issuance of a temporary restraining order and
a preliminary injunction.
Wilson did not set forth the
facts supporting his motion in a verified complaint1 or
1. A verified complaint contains a declaration
signed by the plaintiff under penalty of perjury, in
accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 1746, that the facts stated
in the complaint are true.
If executed within the
United States, a complaint may be verified with a
statement that takes substantially the following form:
“I declare (or certify, verify, or state) under penalty
of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.
Accordingly, upon consideration of the motion, it
is ORDERED that the motion for temporary restraining
failure to comply with the procedural requirements of
Rule 65(b)(1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure,
(b) Temporary Restraining Order:
(1) Issuing Without Notice. The court may issue
a temporary restraining order without written
or oral notice to the adverse party or its
attorney only if:
(A) specific facts in an affidavit or a
declaration, sworn to and signed under penalty of
perjury, that is used to support or oppose a motion.
The affidavit must be made on personal knowledge, set
out facts that would be admissible in evidence, and
show that the affiant or declarant is competent to
testify on the matters stated.
See Fed. R. Civ. P.
Under 28 U.S.C. § 1746, when “any rule” calls
for an affidavit sworn before a notary, an unsworn
written statement made without a notary is sufficient,
so long as it includes the signed statement: “I declare
(or certify, verify, or state) under penalty of perjury
that the foregoing is true and correct.”
28 U.S.C. §
immediate and irreparable injury, loss, or
damage will result to the movant before
(B) the [movant] certifies in writing any
efforts made to give notice and the
reasons why it should not be required.

The motion for preliminary injunction (doc. no. 1)
DONE, this the 2nd day of December, 2016.
