The Court also directed Plaintiff to either pay the full 15 filing fee or complete an IFP application. Plaintiff was warned that a failure to timely file an 16 amended complaint and to either pay the full filing fee or complete an IFP application would result 17 in dismissal without prejudice for failure to prosecute. The Clerk sent Plaintiff a blank civil rights 18 complaint form as well as a prisoner's IFP application. 19 20 21 More than twenty-eight days have passed, and Plaintiff has not filed the necessary documents, paid the full filing fee, or otherwise communicated with the Court.
