PAT LARSEN, Psy.D., CU - Denver Student & Community Counseling Center,
LUCY MCGRUFFY, CHAS - CU Denver,
J. JEFFERY FRANKLIN, Ph.D., CU - Denver Dean’s Office,

ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff, Melani Krneta, resides in Denver. She filed pro se a Complaint (ECF
No. 10) for money damages pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and
section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and asserted constitutional violations under the
First and Fourteenth amendments apparently pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. She also
filed a Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 (ECF
No. 5). Ms. Krneta was granted leave to proceed pursuant to § 1915.
On July 14, 2014, Magistrate Judge Boyd N. Boland entered an order directing
Ms. Krneta to file within thirty days an amended Complaint that asserted facts
supporting her ADA, Rehabilitation Act, and § 1983 claims; complied with the pleading
requirements of Rule 8 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure; sued the proper parties;
and alleged the personal participation of the defendants she claims violated her civil
rights. Magistrate Judge Boland warned Ms. Krneta that even if the instant action is
dismissed without prejudice for failure to comply with the July 14 order, the dismissal
may bar recovery if Ms. Krneta seeks to refile in this Court because the various
limitations periods may have run on her ADA, Rehabilitation Act, and § 1983 claims.
Ms. Krneta has failed within the time allowed to file an amended Complaint or
otherwise communicate with the Court in any way. Therefore, the Complaint and the
action will be dismissed for her failure to file an amended Complaint as directed within
the time allowed, and for her failure to prosecute.
Finally, the Court certifies pursuant to § 1915(a)(3) that any appeal from this
order would not be 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 Ms. Krneta files a notice of appeal she also must pay the full $505.00
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.
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that the Complaint and the action are dismissed without prejudice
pursuant to Rules 8 and 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure for the failure of
Plaintiff, Melani Krneta, to file within the time allowed an amended Complaint that
complied with the pleading requirements of Rule 8 of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure as directed in the order of July 14, 2014, and for her failure to prosecute. It
FURTHER ORDERED that leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is
denied. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that any pending motions are denied as moot.
DATED at Denver, Colorado, this 25th
BY THE COURT:
