A. PFILE, et al.,
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding without counsel or “pro se,” has filed a civil
rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, together with a request for leave to proceed in forma
pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. However, the certificate portion of the request, which
must be completed by plaintiff’s institution of incarceration, has not been filled out. Nor has
plaintiff filed a certified copy of his prison trust account statement for the six-month period

six-month period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint.
2. Plaintiff’s failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation
that this action be dismissed without prejudice.
3. The Clerk of the Court is directed to send plaintiff a new Application to
Proceed In Forma Pauperis By a Prisoner.

addition, the court has reviewed plaintiff’s request for injunctive relief (Dkt. No. 3), and finds
that it does not present any matter so urgent as to require deviation from the routine certification
requirements for initiating a prisoner civil rights action.
