Gibson v. No Named Defendants
ORDER dismissing this action without prejudice, and denying leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal, by Judge Christine M. Arguello on 7/17/14. (dkals, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 14-cv-01611-BNB
MICHAEL BEAU GIBSON ,
[NO NAMED DEFENDANTS],
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff, Michael Beau Gibson, is in the custody of the Colorado Department of
Corrections at the Colorado State Penitentiary. Mr. Gibson initiated this action by filing
a certified copy of his prisoner inmate trust fund statement showing account activity for
the six-month period preceding his filing, as well as an authorization for disbursement of
the filing fee from his inmate trust fund account.
On June 9, 2014, Magistrate Judge Boyd N. Boland reviewed Mr. Gibson’s filing
and determined that it was deficient. Magistrate Judge Boland directed Plaintiff to
submit a Prisoner’s Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed Pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 1915 and a Prisoner Complaint on the court-approved forms. Magistrate Judge
Boland advised Plaintiff that he could pay the $400.00 filing fee in lieu of submitting a
§ 1915 motion and affidavit. Magistrate Judge Boland warned Plaintiff in the June 9
Order that failure to cure the deficiencies noted would result in dismissal of this action
without further notice.
On June 17, 2014, Mr. Gibson submitted a Letter to the Court (ECF No. 4) in
which he states that “there was no complaint filed with this case number in our records,
therefore we will not be filing another 28 U.S.C. § 1915 motion and affidavit for a [case]
that has no complaint filed with it.”
Plaintiff has now failed to comply with the June 9 Order and his June 17 Letter
indicates that he had no intention of doing so. 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 Plaintiff, Michael Beau
Gibson, to comply with the June 9, 2014 Order Directing Plaintiff to Cure Deficiencies.
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 Mr. Gibson 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.
DATED at Denver, Colorado, this 17th day of
July , 2014.
