Schuett v. USA
ORDER dismissing this action without prejudice, and denying without prejudice leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal, by Judge Lewis T. Babcock on 1/16/15. (dkals, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 14-cv-03272-GPG
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff, Clifford Schuett, is an inmate at the Southern Correctional Center in
Pahrump, Nevada. Mr. Schuett initiated this action by filing pro se a document titled
“Motion for a Protection Order (Imminent Danger)” (ECF No. 1). On December 2, 2014,
Magistrate Judge Gordon P. Gallagher entered an order directing Mr. Schuett to cure
certain deficiencies if he wished to pursue his claims. Specifically, Magistrate Judge
Gallagher directed Mr. Schuett to file 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. Mr. Schuett was warned that the action would be dismissed
without further notice if he failed to cure these deficiencies within thirty days.
On December 4, 2014, Mr. Schuett filed a letter (ECF No. 4) requesting
protection from the Court. Mr. Schuett has not filed a Prisoner Complaint and he has
failed either to pay the required filing and administrative fees or to file a properly
supported Prisoner’s Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §
1915. Therefore, the action will be dismissed without prejudice for failure to cure the
deficiencies within the time allowed.
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 action is dismissed without prejudice pursuant to Rule 41(b)
of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure because Mr. Schuett 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.
