CORRECTIONAL CORPORATION OF AMERICA,
BOBBY BONNER, and
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff, Jerrod Corning, is a prisoner at the Kit Carson Correctional Center in
Burlington, Colorado. Mr. Corning initiated this action by filing pro se a Prisoner
Complaint With Jury Demand (ECF No. 1), a Motion to File Without Payment of Filing Fee
(ECF No. 3), a Motion and Affidavit in Support for Appointment of Counsel (ECF No. 4),
and a letter to the Court (ECF No. 5). This civil action was commenced and, on
September 1, 2015, Magistrate Judge Gordon P. Gallagher entered an order directing Mr.
Corning to cure certain deficiencies if he wishes to pursue his claims. Specifically,
Magistrate Judge Gallagher directed Mr. Corning to file on the proper forms a Prisoner
Complaint and a Prisoner’s Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed Pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 1915 and to submit an authorization to calculate and disburse filing fee
payments. Mr. Corning was warned that the action would be dismissed without further
notice if he failed to cure the deficiencies within thirty days.
Mr. Corning has failed to cure the deficiencies within the time allowed and he has
failed to respond in any way to Magistrate Judge Gallagher’s September 1 order.
Therefore, the action will be dismissed without prejudice for failure to cure the
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
ORDERED that the Prisoner Complaint With Jury Demand (ECF No. 1) and the
action are dismissed without prejudice pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure because Mr. Corning 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. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that the Motion to File Without Payment of Filing Fee (ECF
No. 3) and the Motion and Affidavit in Support for Appointment of Counsel (ECF No. 4)
are denied as moot.
