IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 14-cv-00678-BNB
MAZEN J. KHERDEEN, and
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, et al.,
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiffs, Mazan J. Kherdeen and Jim Khen, are detained at the Aurora
Detention Center in Aurora, Colorado. They initiated this action on March 4, 2014, by
filing a Prisoner Complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1331 and Bivens v. Six Unknown
Named Agents of Fed. Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971). The Prisoner
Complaint is signed by only one of the Plaintiffs. Mr. Kherdeen and Mr. Khen also
submitted one Prisoner’s Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed Pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 1915 that is signed by both of them.
On March 6, 2014, Magistrate Judge Boyd N. Boland reviewed the documents
and determined that they were deficient. Magistrate Judge Boland directed the Plaintiffs
to file a Prisoner Complaint signed by both of them. He further instructed each Plaintiff
to submit a Prisoner’s Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed Pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 1915, along with a certified copy of his inmate trust fund account statement showing
the Plaintiff’s account history for the six month period preceding their filing. (See ECF
No. 4). The Court advised Plaintiffs that they could pay the $400 filing fee in the
alternative. Magistrate Judge Boland warned Plaintiffs in the March 6 Order that failure
to cure the deficiencies noted would result in dismissal of this action without further
Plaintiffs have failed to comply with the March 6 Order. Further, neither Plaintiff
has communicated with the Court since this action was initiated on March 4, 2014.
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED without prejudice pursuant to Rule
41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure for the failure of Plaintiffs, Mazan J.
Kherdeen and Jim Khen, to comply with the March 6, 2014 Order Directing Plaintiffs to
Cure Deficiencies. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is
denied for the purpose of appeal. The Court certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 1915(a)(3) that any appeal from this order would not be taken in good faith. See
Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438 (1962). If either Plaintiff files a notice of
appeal he must also pay the full $505 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. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that all pending motions are DENIED as moot.
