Cone v. Whitman et al
ORDER dismissing this action without prejudice, and denying without prejudice leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal, by Judge Lewis T. Babcock on 10/30/14. (dkals, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 14-cv-02555-BNB
EVELY C. CONE,
GREG JONES, and
DENVER POLICE DEPT.,
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff, Evely C. Cone, initiated this action by filing pro se a Complaint (ECF No.
1). On September 24, 2014, Magistrate Judge Boyd N. Boland ordered Ms. Cone to file
an amended complaint that lists an address where each Defendant may be served and
that complies with the pleading requirements of Rule 8 of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure. Ms. Cone was warned that the action would be dismissed without further
notice if she failed to file an amended complaint within thirty days.
On September 26, 2014, Ms. Cone filed two letters to the Court, and she filed a
third letter on September 30, 2014. However, she has failed to file an amended
complaint within the time allowed as directed. Furthermore, the letters do not identify
addresses where Defendants may be served, nor do they provide a clear statement of
the claims Ms. Cone is asserting as required pursuant to Rule 8. Therefore, the action
will be dismissed without prejudice for failure to comply with a court order.
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 she 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 (ECF No. 1) and the action are dismissed without
prejudice pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure because Ms.
Cone failed to comply with a court order. 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.
DATED at Denver, Colorado, this
BY THE COURT:
