Williams v. Baker et al
ORDER to SHOW CAUSE Why Action Should Not Be Dismissed for Failure to Pay Filing Fee OR File Application to Proceed in Forma Pauperis 3 , signed by Magistrate Judge Michael J. Seng on 12/19/16: 14-Day Deadline. (Attachments: # 1 IFP Application (Non-Prisoner) - blank form)(Hellings, J)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
OFFICER BAKER, et al.,
CASE NO. 1:16-cv-01540-MJS (PC)
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY ACTION
SHOULD NOT BE DISMISSED FOR
FAILURE TO PAY FILING FEE OR FILE
APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN FORMA
(ECF No. 3)
FOURTEEN (14) DAY DEADLINE
Plaintiff initiated this action on October 13, 2016. (ECF No. 1.) On October 24,
2016, the Court ordered Plaintiff to submit within 45 days an application to proceed in
forma pauperis or the $400 filing fee. (ECF No. 3.) The 45 day deadline passed without
Plaintiff either filing an application to proceed in forma pauperis, paying the applicable
filing fee, or seeking an extension of time to do so.
A civil action may not proceed absent the submission of either the filing fee or a
completed application to proceed in forma pauperis. 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914, 1915. Based on
Plaintiff’s failure to comply with the Court’s order, dismissal of this action is appropriate.
See In re Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) Products Liability Litigation, 460 F.3d 1217, 1226
(9th Cir. 2006); Local Rule 110.
Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED THAT:
Within fourteen (14) days of service of this Order, Plaintiff shall either file
an application to proceed in forma pauperis for a non-prisoner, pay the
$400 filing fee in full, or show cause as to why this action should not be
dismissed without prejudice; and
If Plaintiff fails to show cause, file an application to proceed in forma
pauperis, or pay the $400 filing fee in full, the undersigned will recommend
the action be dismissed without prejudice for failure to pay the filing fee or
file a completed application to proceed in forma pauperis.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
