IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO Civil Action No. 15-cv-01684-GPG COLLEEN LORIS, Applicant, v. THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF COLORADO, Respondent. ORDER OF DISMISSAL Applicant, Colleen Loris, initiated this action by filing pro se a Writ of Habeas Corpus. (ECF No. 1). On August 7, 2015, Magistrate Judge Gordon P. Gallagher entered an order directing Ms. Loris to cure certain deficiencies if she wished to pursue her claims. (ECF No. 3). Specifically, Magistrate Judge Gallagher directed Ms. Loris to file her Complaint on the proper form as required by the local rules for the District of Colorado. Additionally, Ms. Loris was directed to file a Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 or pay the $5.00 filing fee. Ms. Loris was warned that the action would be dismissed without further notice if she failed to cure these deficiencies within thirty days. Ms. Loris has failed to cure the deficiencies within the time allowed and she has failed to respond in any way to Magistrate Judge Gallagher’s August 7, 2015 order. Therefore, the action will be dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute and cure the deficiencies. 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 Habeas Corpus Application (ECF No. 1) and the action are dismissed without prejudice pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure because Ms. Loris failed to prosecute and 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. DATED at Denver, Colorado, this 11th day of September , 2015. BY THE COURT: s/Lewis T. Babcock LEWIS T. BABCOCK, Senior Judge United States District Court 2
