UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SAN JOSE DIVISION
SHAMONT L. SAPP,
Case No. 17-cv-01698-BLF
WELLS FARGO BANK, N.A.,
ORDER GRANTING LEAVE TO
PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS AND
MOTION TO AMEND CAPTION OF
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Before the Court is Plaintiff Shamont Sapp’s application to proceed in forma pauperis.
ECF 5. Having considered the application and the complaint, the Court hereby GRANTS Sapp’s
application. Sapp also moves to amend the caption of this case. ECF 14. The caption of the
initial complaint indicates that the case was filed based on the Civil Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
ECF 1. However, Sapp requests that the “42 U.S.C. § 1983” caption be replaced with “California
Consumer Protection Act” and “Oregon Consumer Protection Act.” ECF 14-1. The Court finds
this amendment proper and thus GRANTS the motion to amend the caption of the complaint.
The Clerk of the Court shall issue summons. It is further ordered that the U.S. Marshal for
the Northern District of California serve, without prepayment of fees, a copy of the complaint, any
amendment, including the exhibit at ECF 14-1, scheduling orders, attachments, and this order
upon the defendant.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: June 29, 2017
