Schriro, et al., Defendants. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) No. CV 07-0391-PHX-SMM (HCE) ORDER Plaintiff Leroy Perez Calvillo Jr., who is confined in the Arizona State Prison in Buckeye, has filed a pro se Motion For Injunctive Relief. Although Plaintiff alleges violations of his constitutional rights in the motion, his motion is not accompanied by a civil rights Complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983. Additionally, Plaintiff has not paid the $350.00 civil action filing fee nor has he filed a proper Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis and inmate trust account statement. However, Plaintiff has paid $5.00 of the $350 filing fee. I. Payment of Filing Fee When bringing an action, a prisoner must either pay the $350.00 filing fee in a lump sum or, if granted the privilege of proceeding in forma pauperis, pay the fee incrementally as set forth in 28 U.S.C. 1915(b)(1). An application to proceed in forma pauperis requires an affidavit of indigence and a certified copy of the inmate's trust account statement for the 28 Case 2:07-cv-00391-SMM--HCE Document 4 Filed 03/05/2007 Page 1 of 18 Dockets.Justia.com 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 JDDL six months preceding the filing of the Complaint. 28 U.S.C. 1915(a)(2). An inmate must submit statements from each institution where he was confined during the six-month period. Id. To assist prisoners in meeting these requirements, the Court requires use of a form application. LRCiv 3.4(a). If a prisoner is granted leave to proceed in forma pauperis, the Court will assess an initial partial filing fee of 20% of either the average monthly deposits or the average monthly balance in Plaintiff's account, whichever is greater. 28 U.S.C. 1915(b)(1). An initial partial filing fee will only be collected when funds exist. 28 U.S.C. 1915(b)(4). The balance of the fee will be collected in monthly payments of 20% of the preceding month's income credited to an inmate's account, each time the amount in the account exceeds $10.00. 28 U.S.C. 1915(b)(2). II. Application Fails to Comply With Statute Plaintiff has not filed an Application To Proceed In Forma Pauperis nor has he filed an inmate trust account statement. However, Plaintiff has paid $5.00 of the $350 filing fee. Accordingly, Plaintiff now owes a remaining balance of $345 for the filing of this action. Plaintiff will be granted 30 days to either pay the remaining $345.00 balance of the filing fee or file a complete Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis and an inmate trust account statement. III. Motion For Injunctive Relief Pending before the Court is Plaintiff's Motion For Injunctive Relief (Doc. #1). A preliminary injunction is an extraordinary and drastic remedy and will not be granted absent a clear showing of likely success in the underlying claim and possible irreparable injury. See Mazurek v. Armstrong, 520 U.S. 968, 972 (1997) (per curiam). A party seeking preliminary injunctive relief "must necessarily establish a relationship between the injury claimed in the party's motion and the conduct asserted in the complaint." Devose v. Herrington, 42 F.3d 470, 471 (8th Cir. 1994) (per curiam) (Eighth Amendment claim cannot provide basis for preliminary injunction against alleged acts in retaliation for filing claim). In other words, Plaintiff must seek injunctive relief related to the merits of his underlying claim. Because -2Document 4 Filed 03/05/2007 Case 2:07-cv-00391-SMM--HCE Page 2 of 18 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 JDDL there presently is no complaint pending in this action, Plaintiff's request is not properly before the Court at this time. Indeed, even if Plaintiff's motion justified injunctive relief, there are presently no defendants against which the relief could be granted. Accordingly, the Court will deny the motion without prejudice. Plaintiff may renew the motion no earlier then when he files his amended complaint. IV. Court-Approved Form Plaintiff also not submitted a Complaint on a current court-approved form as required by the Local Rules of Practice. The form elicits certain information that assists Plaintiff and permits the Court to efficiently process his action. For example, the form calls for Plaintiff to select whether he sues in their individual or official capacities, and the form also asks Plaintiff to identify whether his claim fits within a list of categories. In light of Plaintiff's failure to use the form, the Court will allow him 30 days to file an Amended Complaint using the court-approved form. To assist Plaintiff, the Court will direct the Clerk of Court to send Plaintiff a current court-approved form for a civil rights action. V. Warnings A. Address Changes Plaintiff must file and serve a notice of a change of address in accordance with Rule 83.3(d) of the Local Rules of Civil Procedure. Plaintiff must not include a motion for other relief with a notice of change of address. Failure to comply may result in dismissal of this action. B. Copies Plaintiff must submit an additional copy of every filing for use by the Court. See LRCiv 5.4. Failure to comply may result in the filing being stricken without further notice to Plaintiff. C. Possible Dismissal If Plaintiff fails to timely comply with every provision of this Order, including these warnings, the Court may dismiss this action without further notice. See Ferdik v.

IT IS ORDERED: (1) (2) That Plaintiff's Motion For Injunctive Relief (Doc. #1) is denied; Within 30 days of the date this Order is filed, Plaintiff must either pay the remaining $345.00 balance of the filing fee or file a completed Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis and a certified six-month trust account statement.

(5) The Clerk of the Court must mail Plaintiff a court-approved form for filing an Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis (Non-Habeas) and for filing a civil rights Complaint pursuant to 42 USC 1983. DATED this 2nd day of March, 2007. Case 2:07-cv-00391-SMM--HCE -4Document 4 Filed 03/05/2007 Page 4 of 18 Instructions for Prisoners Applying for Leave to Proceed in Forma Pauperis Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915 in a Civil Action (Non-habeas) in Federal Court You must pay the full filing fee of $350.00 for a civil action. If you later file an appeal, you will be obligated to pay the $455.00 filing fee for the appeal. If you have enough money to pay the full filing fee, you should send a cashier's check or money order payable to the Clerk of the Court with your complaint, petition, or notice of appeal. If you do not have enough money to pay the full filing fee, you can file the action without prepaying the filing fee. However, the court will assess an initial partial filing fee. The initial partial filing fee will be the greater of 20% of the average monthly deposits or 20% of the average monthly balance in your prison or jail account for the six months immediately preceding the filing of the lawsuit. The court will order the agency that has custody of you to withdraw the initial partial filing fee from your prison or jail account as soon as funds are available and to forward the money to the court. After the initial partial filing fee has been paid, you will owe the balance of the filing fee. Until the filing fee is paid in full, each month you will owe 20% of your preceding month's income. The agency that holds you in custody will collect that money and forward it to the court any time the amount in your account exceeds $10.00. The balance of the filing fee may be collected even if the action is later dismissed, summary judgment is granted against you, or you fail to prevail at trial. To file an action without prepaying the filing fee, and to proceed with an action in forma pauperis, you must complete the attached form and return it to the court with your complaint. You must have a prison or jail official complete the certificate on the bottom of the form and attach a certified copy of your prison or jail account statement for the last six months. If you were incarcerated in a different institution during any part of the past six months, you must attach a certificate and a certified copy of your account statement from each institution at which you were confined. If you submit an incomplete form or do not submit a prison or jail account statement with the form, your request to proceed in forma pauperis will be denied. Even if some or all of the filing fee has been paid, the court is required to dismiss your action if: (1) your allegation of poverty is untrue; (2) the action is frivolous or malicious; (3) your complaint does not state a claim upon which relief can be granted; or (4) your complaint makes a claim against a defendant for money damages and that defendant is immune from liability for money damages. If you file more than three actions or appeals which are dismissed as frivolous or malicious or for failure to state a claim on which relief can be granted, you will be prohibited from filing any other action in forma pauperis unless you are in imminent danger of serious physical injury.

General Information About the Civil Rights Complaint Form: A. The Form. The civil rights complaint form is designed to help prisoners prepare a complaint seeking relief for a violation of their federal civil rights. Local Rule of Civil Procedure 3.4(a) requires that prisoner civil rights complaints be filed on the court-approved form. Your complaint must be typewritten or legibly handwritten. All information must be clearly and concisely written, only in the space provided on the form. If needed, you may attach no more than fifteen additional pages of standard letter size paper to continue any part of the complaint. You must identify which part of the complaint is being continued and number all pages. B. Your Signature. You must sign the complaint. Your signature constitutes a certificate that: 1) you have read the complaint; 2) to the best of your knowledge, information and belief formed after reasonable inquiry it is well grounded in fact and law; and 3) it is not being filed for any improper purpose. Please review Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Rule 11 provides for the imposition of sanctions if the complaint is signed in violation of the Rule. C. The Filing Fee. You must pay the $350.00 filing fee. If you are unable to pay the filing fee when the complaint is filed, you may request leave to proceed in forma pauperis. Please review the "Information for Prisoners Seeking Leave to Proceed with a (Non-Habeas) Civil Action in Federal Court In Forma Pauperis Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915" for more information. D. Court Divisions. If you resided in Maricopa, Pinal, Yuma, La Paz, or Gila county when your rights were allegedly violated, you should file your complaint in the Phoenix Division of the court. If you resided in Apache, Navajo, Coconino, Mohave, or Yavapai county when your rights were allegedly violated, you should file your complaint in the Prescott Division of the court. If you resided in Pima, Cochise, Santa Cruz, Graham, or Greenlee county when your rights were allegedly violated, you should file your complaint in the Tucson Division of the court.

Certificate of Service on Defendants. You must furnish the opposing party or their attorney with a copy of any document you submit to the court (except the initial complaint and application to proceed in forma pauperis). Pursuant to Rules 5(a) and (d) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, each original document (except the initial complaint and application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis) must include a certificate of service on the last page of the document stating the date a copy of the document was mailed to the opposing party or their attorney and the address to which it was mailed. Any document received by the court which does not include a certificate of service may be stricken. A certificate of service should be in the following form: I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was mailed this day of (month) , (year) , to: Name: Address: Attorney for Defendant(s)/Respondent(s) (Signature) F. Original and Judge's Copy. You must furnish an original and one copy of any document submitted to the court. You must furnish one additional copy to the clerk if you wish to have a file-stamped copy of the document returned to you. All copies must be identical to the original. G. Exhibits. You should not submit exhibits with the complaint. Instead, the relevant information should be paraphrased in the complaint.

Rule 15(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure allows you to file one amended complaint prior to any defendant filing an answer. After any defendant has filed an answer, you must file a motion for leave to amend and lodge a proposed amended complaint. Local Rule of Civil Procedure 15.1(a)(2) prohibits any amended pleading from referencing any prior pleading. Further, any allegations or defendants not included in the amended complaint are considered dismissed. J. Letters and Motions. It is generally inappropriate to write a letter to any of the District Judges, Magistrates Judges, or the staff of any of the judicial officers. The appropriate way to communicate with these persons is by filing a written pleading or motion. 2 Case 2:07-cv-00391-SMM--HCE Document 4 Filed 03/05/2007 Page 9 of 18 II. Completing the Civil Rights Complaint Form: HEADING: 1. Your Name. Print your name, prison or jail inmate number, and mailing address on the lines provided. 2. Defendants. Print the names of each of your defendants. If you name more than four defendants, you should print the name of one defendant and "see additional page for defendants" in the space provided. On the additional page you must list the names of all of the defendants. This additional page should be inserted after page 1 and numbered as page "1-A" at the bottom of the page. The initial complaint must contain the names of all of the parties (plaintiffs as well as defendants) in the heading (or on the additional page if more than four defendants). See Rule 10(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. 3. Jury Demand. If you want a jury trial, you must write "JURY TRIAL DEMANDED" on the line below "CIVIL RIGHTS COMPLAINT BY A PRISONER." Failure to do so will result in the loss of the right to a jury trial. A jury trial is not available if you are seeking only injunctive relief. Part A. JURISDICTION: 1. Nature of Suit. Mark whether you are filing the complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983 for state, county, or city defendants; "Bivens v. Six Unknown Federal Narcotics Agents" for federal defendants; or "other." If you mark "other," identify the source of that authority. 2. Plaintiff. Print all of the requested information on the spaces provided. Identify the institution and city where the alleged violation of your rights occurred. 3. Defendants. Print all of the requested information about each of the defendants in the spaces provided. If you are naming more than four defendants, you must provide the necessary information about each additional defendant on a separate page. Label the page(s) as "2-A," "2-B," etc., at the bottom of the page and insert the additional page(s) immediately behind page 2. Part B. PREVIOUS LAWSUITS: You must identify any other lawsuit you have filed in either state or federal court while you were a prisoner. Print all of the requested information about each lawsuit in the spaces provided. If you have filed more than three lawsuits, you must provide the necessary information about each additional lawsuit on a separate page. Label the page(s) as "2-A," "2B," etc., at the bottom of the page and insert the additional page(s) immediately behind page 2. Part C. CAUSE OF ACTION: You must identify what rights the defendant(s) violated. The form provides space to allege three separate counts (one violation per count). If you are alleging more than three 3 Case 2:07-cv-00391-SMM--HCE Document 4 Filed 03/05/2007 Page 10 of 18 counts, you must provide the necessary information about each additional count on a separate page. Number the additional pages "5-A", "5-B", etc., and insert them immediately behind page 5. Remember that you are limited to a total of fifteen additional pages. 1. Counts. You must identify which civil right was violated. YOU MAY ALLEGE THE VIOLATION OF ONLY ONE CIVIL RIGHTS CLAIM PER COUNT. 2. Issue Involved. Check the box that most closely identifies the issue involved in your claim. YOU MAY CHECK ONLY ONE BOX PER COUNT. If you check the box marked "Other," you must identify the specific issue involved in the space provided. 3. Supporting Facts. After you have identified which civil right was violated, you need to state the supporting facts. Be as specific as possible. You must state what each individual defendant did to violate your rights. If there is more than one defendant, you need to identify which defendant did what act. You also need to state the date(s) on which the act(s) occurred if possible. 4. Injury. State precisely how you were injured by the alleged violation of your rights. 5. Administrative Remedies. Exhaustion of administrative remedies is a prerequisite to filing a civil rights complaint. 42 U.S.C. 1997e requires prisoners to exhaust the available administrative remedies before being allowed to file a civil rights action. Consequently, you must disclose whether you have exhausted the inmate grievance procedures or administrative appeals for each count in your complaint. If one of your counts is exempt from the grievance procedures or administrative appeals, fully explain the exemption on the lines provided. Part D. REQUEST FOR RELIEF: Print the relief you are seeking in the space provided. SIGNATURE: You must sign your name and print the date you signed the complaint. Your signature must be an original signature, not a photocopy. FINAL NOTE You should follow these instructions carefully. Failure to do so may result in your complaint being stricken or dismissed by the court. All questions must be answered concisely in the proper space on the form. If needed, you may attach no more than fifteen additional pages. The form, however, must be completely filled in to the extent applicable. If you attach additional pages, be sure to identify which section of the complaint is being continued and number the pages. 4 Case 2:07-cv-00391-SMM--HCE Document 4 Filed 03/05/2007 Page 11 of 18 Name and Prisoner/Booking Number Place of Confinement Mailing Address City, State, Zip Code IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA ) ,) ) ) ) CASE NO. ) (To be supplied by the Clerk) ,) ) ,) ) CIVIL RIGHTS COMPLAINT ,) BY A PRISONER ) ,) G Original Complaint ) G First Amended Complaint ) G Second Amended Complaint A.
