Arechiga-Mendoza v. No Defendants Named
ORDER of Dismissal. ORDERED that the Complaint and action are dismissed without prejudice. Leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is denied, by Judge Lewis T. Babcock on 1/11/13. (sgrim)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 12-cv-03122-BNB
NO DEFENDANTS NAMED,
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff, Atanasio Arechiga-Mendoza, currently is detained at the Denver County
Jail in Denver, Colorado. Plaintiff, acting pro se, initiated this action by submitting a
Letter to the Court challenging the conditions of his confinement. In an order entered on
December 2, 2012, Magistrate Judge Boyd N. Boland instructed Plaintiff to cure certain
deficiencies if he wished to pursue his claims. Specifically, Magistrate Judge Boland
instructed Plaintiff to file his claims on a Court-approved form used by plaintiffs detained
at a jail facility and to submit a Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed Pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 1915, along with a certified trust fund account statement.
Magistrate Judge Boland warned Plaintiff that the action would be dismissed
without further notice if he failed to cure the deficiencies within thirty days. Plaintiff has
failed to communicate with the Court and as a result has failed to cure the deficiencies
within the time allowed. Therefore, the action will be dismissed.
The Court also certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3) that any appeal from
this Order is not taken in good faith, and, therefore, in forma pauperis status will be
denied for the purpose of appeal. See Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438
(1962). If Plaintiff files a notice of appeal he must pay the full $455 appellate filing fee
or file a motion to proceed in forma pauperis in the United States Court of Appeals for
the Tenth Circuit within thirty days in accordance with Fed. R. App. P. 24.
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that the Complaint and action are dismissed without prejudice
pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b) for failure to cure all deficiencies and for failure to
prosecute. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is
DATED at Denver, Colorado, this 11th day of January, 2013.
BY THE COURT:
