1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 8 In re MCCOLLUM, Plaintiff. Case No. 20-cv-09478-HSG ORDER OF DISMISSAL 9 10 United States District Court Northern District of California 11 On December 31, 2020, the Court received a letter from Plaintiff expressing concern about 12 prison conditions, stating that he feared for his safety and was concerned about potential exposure 13 to COVID, and seeking a copy of a court order. Dkt. No. 1. The Court therefore opened a civil 14 rights action under the above-captioned case number and the Clerk of the Court informed Plaintiff 15 that this action was deficient because he had neither (1) filed a complaint on the proper form or (2) 16 paid the $350 filing fee or filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Dkt. Nos. 2, 4. The 17 Clerk of the Court informed Plaintiff that he had twenty-eight days to correct these deficiencies or 18 the action would be dismissed. Id. 19 On January 25, 2021, the Court received a letter from Plaintiff, stating that he did not 20 intend to open a civil rights action and merely wanted a copy of a court order. Because it appears 21 that Plaintiff did not seek to bring a new action regarding the issues raised in his December 31, 22 2020 letter to the Court, the Clerk of the Court is directed to administratively close this action as 23 opened in error. Because the action was opened in error, no filing fee is due. 24 25 26 27 28 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: 2/16/2021 ______________________________________ HAYWOOD S. GILLIAM, JR.
