IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 14-cv-00839-BNB
[NO DEFENDANTS NAMED],
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff, Steven McCary, is a prisoner in the custody of the Colorado Department
of Corrections. Mr. McCary initiated this action by filing pro se a “Formal Complaint and
Affidavit” (ECF No. 1) alleging that he is being denied adequate medical treatment. The
instant action was commenced and on March 21, 2014, Magistrate Judge Boyd N.
Boland entered an order directing Mr. McCary to cure certain deficiencies if he wished
to pursue any claims in this action. Specifically, Magistrate Judge Boland ordered Mr.
McCary to file on the proper form a Prisoner Complaint and either to pay filing and
administrative fees totaling $400.00 or to file 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 and an authorization to calculate and disburse filing fee
payments. Mr. McCary was warned that the action would be dismissed without further
notice if he failed to cure the deficiencies within thirty days.
Mr. McCary has failed to cure the deficiencies within the time allowed and he has
failed to respond in any way to Magistrate Judge Boland’s March 21 order. Therefore,
the action will be dismissed without prejudice for failure to cure the deficiencies.
Furthermore, 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 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 also must 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. Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that the complaint and the action are dismissed without prejudice
pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure because Mr. McCary
failed to cure the deficiencies as directed. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is
denied without prejudice to the filing of a motion seeking leave to proceed in forma
pauperis on appeal in the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
