ORDER OF DISMISSAL. Signed by Judge Charles R. Breyer on 9/16/2016. (Attachments: # 1 Certificate/Proof of Service)(beS, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 9/16/2016)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
In re RORY JOSHUA, AY5819,
No. C 16-4353 CRB (PR)
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
On August 2, 2016, the clerk filed as a new prisoner action a letter from
plaintiff complaining of inadequate medical care at San Quentin State Prison. On
that same date, the court notified plaintiff in writing that the action was deficient
because he did not file an actual complaint or pay the requisite filing fee or,
instead, submit a signed and completed court-approved in forma pauperis (IFP)
application. Plaintiff was advised that failure to file the requested items within 28
days would result in dismissal of the action.
Plaintiff instead filed a letter explaining that he did not intend his letter to
be filed as a new action as he was still exhausting administrative remedies. Good
cause appearing, the case is DISMISSED without prejudice. The clerk is
instructed to close this matter as improvidently opened. No filing fee is due.
DATED: Sept. 16, 2016
