Brown v. Diggins et al
ORDER dismissing this action without prejudice, and denying leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal, by Judge Lewis T. Babcock on 1/29/15. (dkals, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 14-cv-03430-GPG
BYRON T. BROWN,
SHERIFF DIGGINS, Denver Sheriff Department, and
JANE AND JOHN DOES, Six Denver Sheriffs, All in Their Official and Individual
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff Byron T. Brown currently is detained at the Denver County Jail in
Denver, Colorado. Plaintiff initiated this action by filing pro se a Prisoner Complaint
pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and a Prisoner’s Motion and Affidavit for Leave to
Proceed Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. Magistrate Judge Gordon P. Gallagher granted
Plaintiff leave to proceed pursuant to § 1915 on December 22, 2014.
Magistrate Judge Gallagher also reviewed the merits of the Complaint and found
that Plaintiff failed to assert personal participation by each named defendant. Plaintiff
was directed to state specifically what each defendant did to him. He also was told that
he may name John/Jane Doe defendants, but he must provide sufficient information
about these defendants so they could be identified for the purpose of service.
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 December 22, 2014 Order within the
time allowed. The Court finds Magistrate Judge Gallagher correctly required Plaintiff to
amend the Complaint, state personal participation by each defendant, and properly
identify the John/Jane Doe defendants. 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
DATED at Denver, Colorado, this 29th day of
BY THE COURT:
