UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
DAE HENDERSON, JR.,
JEFFREY Y. HAMILTON, et al.,
Case No. 1:21-cv-00697-NONE-SKO
ORDER DISCHARGING JUNE 14, 2021
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE AND
GRANTING APPLICATION TO PROCEED
IN FORMA PAUPERIS AND DIRECTING
PAYMENT OF INMATE FILING FEE BY
THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF
CORRECTIONS AND REHABILITATION
(Docs. 4, 7)
On June 14, 2021, the Court entered an Order to Show Cause requiring Plaintiff Dae
19 Henderson, Jr., a prisoner proceeding pro se, July 8, 2021, to file an amended application to proceed
20 in forma pauperis, to pay filing fee, or to otherwise show cause why the case should not be
21 dismissed.1 (Doc. 4.) On July 12, 2021, Plaintiff filed an amended application to proceed in forma
22 pauperis. (Doc. 7.) Plaintiff’s application is, therefore, untimely.
Although the Court may extend time to file a response after the deadline has expired because
24 of “excusable neglect,” Fed. R. Civ. P. 6(b)(1)(B), no such excusable neglect has been articulated –
25 much less shown – here. Notwithstanding this deficiency, in view of the liberal construction of Fed.
26 R. Civ. 6(b)(1) to effectuate the general purpose of seeing that cases are tried on the merits, see
Plaintiff was ordered to take appropriate action within twenty-one (21) days of service of the Order to Show Cause.
(See Doc. 4 at 2.)

1 Ahanchian v. Xenon Pictures, Inc., 624 F.3d 1253, 1258-59 (9th Cir. 2010), the Court hereby
2 DISCHARGES its June 14, 2021 Order to Show Cause. (Doc. 4.)
Plaintiff has made the showing required by 28 U.S.C. § 1915, and, accordingly, the request
4 to proceed in forma pauperis will be granted. Plaintiff is obligated to pay the statutory filing fee of
5 $350.00 for this action. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1). Plaintiff is obligated to make monthly payments
6 in the amount of twenty percent of the preceding month’s income credited to Plaintiff’s trust
7 account. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is required to send to the
8 Clerk of Court payments from Plaintiff’s account each time the amount in the account exceeds
9 $10.00, until the statutory filing fee is paid in full. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(2).
As to the status of his complaint, Plaintiff is advised that, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2),
11 the court must conduct an initial review of every pro se complaint proceeding in forma pauperis to
12 determine whether it is legally sufficient under the applicable pleading standards. The court must
13 dismiss a complaint, or portion thereof, if the court determines that the complaint is legally frivolous
14 or malicious, fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted, or seeks monetary relief from
15 a defendant who is immune from such relief. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2). If the court determines that
16 the complaint fails to state a claim, leave to amend may be granted to the extent that the deficiencies
17 in the complaint can be cured by amendment. Plaintiff’s complaint will be screened in due course.
18 If appropriate after the case has been screened, the Clerk of Court will provide Plaintiff with the
19 requisite forms and instructions to request the assistance of the United States Marshal in serving the
20 defendants pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4.
In accordance with the above, and good cause appearing therefore, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED
Plaintiff’s application to proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. 7) is GRANTED;
The Director of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation or an
appropriate designee shall collect payments from Plaintiff’s prison trust account in
an amount equal to twenty percent (20%) of the preceding month’s income credited
to the prisoner’s trust account, and shall forward those payments to the Clerk of
Court each time the amount in the account exceeds $10.00, in accordance with 28
Case 1:21-cv-00697-NONE-SKO Document 9 Filed 07/19/21 Page 3 of 3
U.S.C. § 1915(b)(2), until a total of $350.00 has been collected and forwarded to the
Clerk of Court. The payments shall be clearly identified by the name and number
assigned to this action;
The Clerk of Court is directed to serve a copy of this order and a copy of Plaintiff’s in
forma pauperis application on the Director of the California Department of Corrections
and Rehabilitation, via the court’s electronic case filing system (CM/ECF); and
The Clerk of Court is directed to serve a copy of this order on the Financial Department,
U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California, Sacramento Division.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
