In the Court's experience, the Fresno County Jail, the site of Plaintiff's incarceration, customarily provides a statement of account to prisoners who are submitting applications to proceed in forma pauperis. Plaintiff will be provided the opportunity either to pay the $250.00 filing fee or submit a completed application, with a signed certificate, and an original certified copy of his trust account statement covering the full six-month period in support of his request to proceed in forma pauperis. In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that 1) Within thirty days of the date of service of this order, Plaintiff shall either submit a completed application to proceed in forma pauperis, including a signed certificate and an original certified copy of his prison trust account statement for the sixmonth period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint, or, in the alternative, pay the $250.00 filing fee for this action; Plaintiff's failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed; and 2) The Clerk IS DIRECTED to send to Plaintiff with this order a blank application to proceed in forma pauperis for a person in custody.
IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: icido3 February 12, 2006 /s/ Sandra M. Snyder UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
