HATTON, et al., United States District Court Northern District of California 11 Defendants. Case No. 19-cv-03608-HSG ORDER DENYING AS MOOT REQUEST FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO COMPLETE IN FORMA PAUPERIS APPLICATION Re: Dkt. No. 8 12 13 Plaintiff, an inmate at Corcoran State Prison (“CSP”), filed this pro se civil rights action 14 pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, regarding events that happened at Salinas Valley State Prison 15 (“SVSP”), where he was previously incarcerated. Dkt. No. 1. Plaintiff seeks an extension of time 16 to file a complete in forma pauperis application. Dkt. No. 8. Plaintiff’s request is DENIED as 17 moot. On September 23, 2019, the Court DISMISSED this action without prejudice for failure to 18 either pay the $350 filing fee or file the necessary forms to complete his in forma pauperis 19 application. Dkt. No. 6. Accordingly, plaintiff need not seek an extension of time to file the 20 complete in forma pauperis application. Because the dismissal was without prejudice, plaintiff 21 may move to reopen the action at any time by filing a request to reopen the case, accompanied by 22 a complete in forma pauperis application, i.e., an application with the required certified copy of 23 the plaintiff’s inmate trust account statement for the last six months. 24 This order terminates Dkt. No. 8. 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 27 28 Dated: 10/3/2019 ______________________________________ HAYWOOD S. GILLIAM, JR. United States District Judge
