The Court cannot conduct an initial review of this matter until Petitioner has either paid the filing fee or completed an IFP application. See 28 U.S.C. 1915(a) (a party is permitted to file a civil action in federal court without prepayment of fees or security if he makes an affidavit that he is unable to pay such fees or give security therefor). Accordingly, Petitioner shall pay the requisite $5.00 filing fee in this action no later than thirty (30) days from the date of this Order. He shall include with his payment a clear indication that it is for the above-referenced case number, C 08-03565 SBA (PR). In the event that Petitioner is unable to pay the filing fee, he shall submit an IFP application, trust account statement and certificate of funds no later than thirty (30) days from the date of this Order. Failure to pay the filing fee or file the requisite documents within the thirty-day deadline shall result in dismissal of this action. The Clerk of the Court shall send Petitioner a blank prisoner IFP application form along with his copy of this Order. IT IS SO ORDERED.
