ORDER VACATING DISMISSAL Plaintiff, David Hover, is a prisoner in the custody of the Colorado Department of Corrections who currently is incarcerated at the correctional facility in Sterling, Colorado. Mr. Hover filed pro se a prisoner complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1343, 42 U.S.C. § 1983, and 18 U.S.C. § 1514(a) for money damages and injunctive relief. He was granted leave to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. On September 26, 2011, Magistrate Judge Boyd N. Boland ordered Mr. Hover to submit within thirty days an amended complaint that (1) did not assert jurisdiction pursuant to criminal statutes because private citizens cannot prosecute criminal actions, (2) complied with the pleading requirements of Rule 8 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and (3) alleged the personal participation of each named defendant. The September 26 order directed Mr. Hover to obtain the Court-approved Prisoner Complaint form, with the assistance of his case manager or his prison facility’s legal assistant, and the applicable instructions at www.cod.uscourts.gov. The September 26 order also warned Mr. Hoover that, if he failed to file an amended complaint as directed within the time allowed, the complaint and the action would be dismissed without further notice. On November 3, 2011, the Court dismissed the instant action without prejudice pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and entered judgment on the basis that Mr. Hover failed within the time allowed to file an amended complaint as directed or otherwise to communicate with the Court in any way, and that he failed to prosecute. However, it has come to the Court’s attention that Mr. Hover filed an amended complaint on November 2, 2011. Accordingly, it is 2 ORDERED that the Order of Dismissal and Judgment entered on November 3, 2011, are vacated because Plaintiff, David Hover, filed an amended complaint on November 2, 2011. DATED at Denver, Colorado, this 7th day of November , 2011. BY THE COURT: s/Lewis T. Babcock LEWIS T. BABCOCK Senior Judge, United States District Court 3
