UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
RICARDO VILLALOBOS, JR.,
ORDER TO SUBMIT APPLICATION
TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
OR PAY FILING FEE OR VOLUNTARY
DISMISSAL WITHIN 45 DAYS
MARIA FAULKNER, et al.,
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se in a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C.
' 1983, which he initially filed in the United States District Court in the Northern District of
California. (Doc. 1.) This action was opened when the Northern District Court severed a number
of Plaintiff’s claims and defendants and had them transferred to this Court. (Docs. 4, 5.) Though
Plaintiff submitted an application to proceed in forma pauperis with the original action to the
Norther District Court, he has not done so here. Further, since this action was transferred here
and opened without Plaintiff’s involvement, it is unknown whether Plaintiff desires to even
pursue this action at this time. Plaintiff has not paid the $400.00 filing fee, or submitted an
application to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ' 1915 in this action.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
Within forty-five (45) days of the date of service of this order, Plaintiff shall:
submit the attached application to proceed in forma pauperis, completed and
pay the $400.00 filing fee for this action; or
submit a notice of voluntary dismissal under Rule 41(a)(1)(A)(i) of the Federal
Rules of Civil Procedure.
No requests for extension will be granted without a showing of good cause. Failure to
comply with this order will result in dismissal of this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
