LACK OF SIGNATURE
(ECF No. 17.)
ORDER VACATING FINDINGS AND
(ECF. No. 15.)
ORDER FOR PLAINTIFF TO FILE
AMENDED COMPLAINT WITHIN
TWENTY (20) DAYS
ORDER FOR CLERK TO SEND
PLAINTIFF A CIVIL COMPLAINT
Daphnye S. Luster (“Plaintiff”) is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma
pauperis with this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
On February 27, 2017, the court issued a screening order dismissing the complaint for
failure to state a claim, with leave to amend within thirty days. (ECF No. 14.) The thirty-day
time period passed, and Plaintiff did not file an amended complaint.
On April 17, 2017, the court entered findings and recommendations, recommending that
this case be dismissed for failure to state a claim. (ECF No. 15.) On May 3, 2017, Plaintiff
filed objections to the findings and recommendations. (ECF No. 17.) The objections are not
signed by Plaintiff. All filings submitted to the court must bear the signature of the filing party.
Local Rule 131; Fed. R. Civ. P. 11(a). Accordingly, the objections shall be stricken.
Plaintiff has now indicated interest in litigating this case. Therefore, the court shall
vacate the findings and recommendations and allow Plaintiff another opportunity to file the
amended complaint, within twenty (20) days.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
Plaintiff's objections, filed on May 3, 2017, are STRICKEN from the record for
lack of signature;
The Clerk’s Office shall send Plaintiff a form § 1983 complaint;
Within twenty (20) days from the date of service of this order, Plaintiff is
required to file an amended complaint on the court’s form, pursuant to the order
issued on February 27, 2017; and
Plaintiff’s failure to comply with this order shall result in a recommendation that
this case be dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
May 4, 2017
