Matthew Timothy Alexander v. Warden
ORDER OF DISMISSAL. Signed by Judge Jon S. Tigar on July 5, 2016. (Attachments: # 1 Certificate/Proof of Service)(wsn, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 7/5/2016)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
MATTHEW TIMOTHY ALEXANDER,
Case No. 16-cv-02685-JST (PR)
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
United States District Court
Northern District of California
In a notice dated May 18, 2016, the Clerk of the Court directed Petitioner to complete an in
forma pauperis (IFP) application, or pay the filing fee of $5.00, within 28 days, or face dismissal
of the action. More than 28 days have passed and Petitioner has not filed a complete IFP
application or paid the filing fee.
The Court notes that Petitioner is housed at Coalinga State Hospital. There is insufficient
information in the record to determine the reason for Petitioner’s custody at Coalinga for the Court
to determine whether he is exempt from the Prison Litigation Reform Act as a non-prisoner.
However, regardless whether a petitioner is a prisoner or a non-prisoner, the court needs accurate
information about his financial wherewithal to decide whether pauper status is appropriate.
Accordingly, the action is DISMISSED without prejudice. Any motion to reopen the
action must contain a complete IFP application or full payment of the $5.00 filing fee.
The Clerk shall close the file.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 5, 2016
JON S. TIGAR
United States District Judge
