ORDER dismissing this action without prejudice, and denying leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal, by Judge Lewis T. Babcock on 10/7/15. (dkals, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 15-cv-01574-GPG
MARCUS R. WILLIAMS,
[NO NAMED DEFENDANTS/RESPONDENTS],
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Marcus R. Williams is in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons and currently
is incarcerated at the United States Penitentiary in Florence, Colorado. Plaintiff initiated
this action by filing pro se a Letter that does not state the purpose of the filing. On August
30, 2015, Magistrate Judge Gordon P. Gallagher entered an order and directed Plaintiff to
cure certain deficiencies in the pleading. First, because it is not clear what Mr. Williams
is challenging, Magistrate Judge Gallagher directed Mr. Williams to clarify the intent of his
filing by utilizing the correct Court-approved form for his filing. Magistrate Judge
Gallagher also directed Mr. Williams to submit a request to proceed pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
' 1915 or pay the appropriate filing fee.
Magistrate Judge Gallagher warned Mr. Williams that the action would be
dismissed without further notice if he failed to cure the deficiencies within thirty days.
Because Mr. Williams now has failed to cure the deficiencies noted in the August 30
Order, within the time allowed, the Court will dismiss this action.
The Court 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 pauperis status is denied for the
purpose of appeal. See Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438 (1962). If Mr.
Williams files a notice of appeal he must also pay the full $505.00 appellate filing fee or file
a motion to proceed in forma pauperis in 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 Fed. R. Civ.
P. 41(b) for failure to cure the deficiencies and for failure to prosecute. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is
