NORTH OF THE RIVER COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTER, Defendant. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) Case No.: 1:17-cv-00100- DAD - JLT ORDER DIRECTING PLAINTIFF TO FILE AN AMENDED MOTION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS 16 17 Edward Morris seeks to proceed in forma pauperis in this action. (Doc. 2) The Court may 18 authorize the commencement of an action without prepayment of fees “by a person who submits an 19 affidavit that includes a statement of all assets such person . . . possesses [and] that the person is 20 unable to pay such fees or give security therefor.” 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). The Court has reviewed the 21 application and the information provided is insufficient to determine whether Plaintiff satisfies the 22 requirements of 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). 23 According to his application, Plaintiff is not employed and has no income. (Doc. 2 at 1) 24 However, Plaintiff failed to complete the section directing him to state the date of his last employment, 25 the amount of his salary, and the address of his last employer. (Id.) Further, Plaintiff indicates he does 26 not possess real estate, stocks, bonds, securities, other financial instruments, an automobile, or other 27 things of value—and his bank account has only 78 cents. (Id. at 2) Consequently, the Court is unable 28 to determine how Plaintiff is supporting himself, or if Plaintiff is dependent upon another individual 1 1 who would be able to pay the filing fee. 2 Accordingly, Plaintiff is ORDERED to file, within fourteen days of this order, an application 3 that includes information on how Plaintiff is supporting himself, or his dependence on another. Upon 4 receipt of this information, the Court will resume consideration of Plaintiff’s motion to proceed in 5 forma pauperis. Plaintiff is warned that failure to comply with this order may result in denial of his 6 application to proceed in forma pauperis. 7 IT IS SO ORDERED. 8 9 Dated: January 26, 2017 /s/ Jennifer L.
