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

prejudice pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure because Mr.
Shelton 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 Prisoner’s Motion and Affidavit for Leave to
Proceed Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 and Fed. R. App. P. 24 (ECF No. 2) is denied as
