1 2 3 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 4 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 5 OAKLAND DIVISION 6 7 MICHAEL HOLLINS, Plaintiff, 8 9 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 No. C 13-5035 PJH (PR) No. C 13-5083 PJH (PR) No. C 13-5085 PJH (PR) No. C 13-5086 PJH (PR) No. C 13-5087 PJH (PR) vs. G. MUNKS, et. al., ORDER TO SUBMIT IFP APPLICATIONS Defendants. / 12 Plaintiff is a detainee at the San Mateo County Jail. Over the course of three days 13 plaintiff filed five actions in this court, one petition for habeas corpus and four civil rights 14 cases. None of the actions contained a completed application to proceed in forma pauperis 15 (“IFP”). Plaintiff was informed that he either had to pay the fees or file proper IFP 16 applications. Plaintiff has filed one letter for all the actions stating that jail staff have 17 refused to provide the required paperwork to complete the IFP applications. This 18 conclusory statement without an explanation is insufficient. Plaintiff must file a completed 19 IFP application in each case by December 23, 2013. If plaintiff is unable to obtain the 20 proper paperwork, he must file a declaration by that date describing in detail his attempts to 21 obtain the paperwork and how he has been obstructed for each separate case and by 22 which officials. He must also include copies of requests he submitted to jail staff to 23 complete the IFP applications. Simply stating that unnamed jail staff have obstructed his 24 efforts without providing an explanation will not suffice. 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 Dated: November 19, 2013. PHYLLIS J. HAMILTON United States District Judge 27 28 G:\PRO-SE\PJH\CR.13\HollinsIFP.wpd
