IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO Civil Action No. 14-cv-03209-GPG AZFAR JADOON ANWAR, Plaintiff, v. UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP, and SONY MUSIC, Defendants. ORDER OF DISMISSAL Plaintiff Azfar J. Anwar currently resides in Denver, Colorado. Plaintiff initiated this action by filing pro se a Complaint and an Application to Proceed in District Court Without Prepayment of Fees or Costs. Magistrate Gordon P. Gallagher granted the Application on December 3, 2014. Magistrate Judge Gallagher then reviewed the merits of the Complaint and found that the Complaint failed to comply with Fed. R. Civ. P. 8. Plaintiff was directed to amend the complaint, state proper jurisdiction, and assert how each named defendant participated in violating his legal rights. Magistrate Judge Gallagher warned Plaintiff that if he failed to comply with the Order to Amend within the time allowed the Court would dismiss the action without further notice. Plaintiff now has failed to comply with the Court’s December 3, 2014 Order within the time allowed. The Court finds Magistrate Judge Gallagher correctly determined that Plaintiff failed to comply with Rule 8 and required him to amend the Complaint. The Court, therefore, will dismiss the action for failure to comply with a Court order and to prosecute. The Court also certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3) that any appeal from this Order is not taken in good faith, and, therefore, in forma paupers status is denied for the purpose of appeal. See Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438 (1962). If Plaintiff files a notice of appeal he must also pay the full $505 appellate filing fee or file a motion to proceed in forma pampers in the Tenth Circuit within thirty days in accordance with Fed. R. App. P. 24. Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the Complaint and action are dismissed without prejudice pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b) for failure to file an Amended Complaint and for failure to prosecute. It is FURTHER ORDERED that leave to proceed in forma pampers on appeal is denied. DATED at Denver, Colorado, this 12th day of January , 2015. BY THE COURT: s/Lewis T. Babcock LEWIS T. BABCOCK, Senior Judge United States District Court 2
