U.S. FEDERAL MARSHAL, et al.,
ORDER FOR PLAINTIFF TO SUBMIT

RULE 4 OF THE FEDERAL RULES OF
(ECF No. 27)
14 DAY DEADLINE
On September 5, 2017, the Court dismissed this case and entered judgment. (ECF Nos.
25-26). On October 6, 2017, Plaintiff filed a notice of appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of
Appeals. (ECF No. 27). The appeal was given the case number 17-17018. (ECF No. 30). On
October 6, 2017, Plaintiff also filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal.
(ECF No. 27).
Pursuant to Rule 24(a)(1) of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, “a party to a
district-court action who desires to appeal in forma pauperis must file a motion in the district
court. The party must attach an affidavit that: (A) shows in the detail prescribed by Form 4 of
the Appendix of Forms the party’s inability to pay or to give security for fees and costs; (B)
claims an entitlement to redress; and (C) states the issues that the party intends to present on
appeal.” Fed. R. App. P. 24(a)(1).
While Plaintiff did not file a completed Form 4 of the Appendix of Forms, the Court
finds that the application to proceed in forma pauperis that Plaintiff submitted satisfies Federal
Rule of Civil Procedure 24(a)(1)(A). However, Plaintiff has not submitted an affidavit1 that
claims he is entitled to redress or that states the issues that Plaintiff intends to present on
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Within fourteen days from the date of service of this order, Plaintiff must submit
an affidavit that claims an entitlement to redress and that states the issues that
Plaintiff intends to present on appeal;
2. The Clerk of Court is directed to serve a copy of this order on the Ninth Circuit
Court of Appeals; and
3. If Plaintiff fails to comply with this order, the Court will deny his application to
proceed in forma pauperis on appeal.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
