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