UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
DAVID J. DEL RIO,
SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA,
COUNTY OF RIVERSIDE, et al.,
Case No. 1:20-cv-01186-NONE-EPG
SECOND ORDER REQUIRING
PLAINTIFF TO SUBMIT APPLICATION
TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
OR PAY FILING FEE
FORTY-FIVE (45) DAY DEADLINE
Plaintiff, David J. Del Rio, is proceeding pro se in this civil rights action. (See ECF No.
1.) Because Plaintiff has neither paid the $400.00 filing fee nor submitted an application to
proceed in forma pauperis (“IFP”) pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915, on August 25, 2020, the court
entered an order requiring Plaintiff to either file an IFP application or pay the filing fee. (ECF No.
On September 10, 2020, Plaintiff filed a document that appears to be a copy of his inmate
transaction list from his institution of confinement. (ECF No. 3.) This inmate transaction list,
which is not certified, shows an inmate withdrawal made on August 12, 2020, in the amount of
$400, with the notation “EASTERN DIST.” However, Plaintiff’s complaint initiating this action
was not received by the court until August 21, 2020. (ECF No. 1.) The court did not receive with
the complaint and has not subsequently received, from Plaintiff or from his institution of
confinement on behalf of Plaintiff, payment for the filing fee. Nor has the Court receive an IFP
application from Plaintiff.
To the extent Plaintiff sent funds to the court prior to the court’s receipt of the complaint,
the court would have returned those funds to Plaintiff, and Plaintiff should follow up with his
institution of confinement to determine the status of such funds.
IT IS ORDERED that:
1. The Clerk of the Court is respectfully directed to send Plaintiff an application to
proceed in forma pauperis by a prisoner.
2. 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 signed, or, in the
alternative, pay the $400.00 filing fee for this action. 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.
