UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
ORDER DISMISSING CIVIL
ACTION FOR FAILING TO PAY
FILING FEE OR MOVE TO
PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
AND FOR FAILING TO COMPLY
WITH COURT ORDER
Case No. 21cv566-MMA-LL
SIX NAMED AGENTS OF THE U.S.
DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE,
Plaintiff Paul Blackmer, an inmate currently incarcerated at New Hampshire State
Prison for Men, and proceeding pro se, filed this civil action on March 22, 2021. See
Doc. No. 1.
On April 5, 2021, the Court dismissed this action for failing to pay the filing fee
required by 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a) or alternatively, filing a motion to proceed in forma
pauperis (“IFP”). See Doc. No. 4. Plaintiff was granted forty-five (45) days leave to
prepay the entire $402 civil filing and administrative fee or complete a motion to proceed
IFP. Id. at 2.
Plaintiff had until May 20, 2021 to comply with the Court’s Order. But to date,
Plaintiff has not paid the fee or filed a motion to proceed IFP, and has not requested an
extension of time in which to do so.
Conclusion and Order
Accordingly, the Court DISMISSES this civil action in its entirety without
prejudice based on Plaintiff’s failing to pay the filing fee required by 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a)
or alternatively, filing a motion to proceed in compliance with the Court’s April 5, 2021
The Court further CERTIFIES that an IFP appeal would not be taken in good faith
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3) and DIRECTS the Clerk to enter a final judgment of
dismissal and close the file.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATE: June 7, 2021
HON. MICHAEL M. ANELLO
United States District Judge
