EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 1:17-cv-00728-SAB
ORDER REQUIRING PLAINTIFF TO FILE
LONG FORM APPLICATION
(ECF No. 2)
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY,
TWENTY DAY DEADLINE
Plaintiff Jorge Rios (“Plaintiff”) filed the complaint in this action on May 25, 2017,
19 challenging the Commissioner of Social Security’s denial of benefits. (ECF No. 1.) Plaintiff did
20 not pay the filing fee in this action and instead filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis
21 pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. (ECF No. 2.) However, Plaintiff’s application was not adequately
22 completed. Plaintiff did not respond to the questions asking him if he is currently employed and
23 if he has received any money in the past 12 months. The form is insufficient to determine if he is
24 entitled to proceed without prepayment of fees in this action.
Accordingly, the Court will order Plaintiff to complete and file an Application to Proceed
26 in District Court Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Long Form) – AO 239. If Plaintiff is
27 unwilling to complete and submit the long form application, Plaintiff must pay the filing fee in
Based upon the foregoing, it is HEREBY ORDERED that:
The Clerk of the Court is directed to forward an Application to Proceed in District
Court Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Long Form) – AO 239 to Plaintiff;
Within twenty (20) days of the date of this order, Plaintiff shall either (1) pay the
$400.00 filing fee for this action, or (2) complete and file the enclosed
Application to Proceed in District Court Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Long
Form) – AO 239; and
If Plaintiff fails to comply with this order, this action shall be dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
