IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 15-cv-02074-GPG
LUKE IRVIN CHRISCO, Secured Party, individually and on behalf of all persons similarly
RICHARD F. RAEMISCH, Executive Dir. of the CDOC,
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff, Luke Irvin Chrisco, is a prisoner in the custody of the Colorado
Department of Corrections. Mr. Chrisco initiated this action by filing pro se a Prisoner
Complaint (ECF No. 1) pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On October 28, 2015, Magistrate
Judge Gordon P. Gallagher ordered Mr. Chrisco to file an amended complaint that
includes all of the factual allegations he is asserting in support of his claim in the amended
complaint rather than in a separate motion. Magistrate Judge Gallagher warned Mr.
Chrisco that the action would be dismissed without further notice if he failed to file an
amended complaint within thirty days.
Mr. Chrisco has failed to file an amended complaint within the time allowed and he
has not responded in any way to Magistrate Judge Gallagher’s October 28 order.
Therefore, the action will be dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute and
comply with a court order. The Court also 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 is
ORDERED that the Prisoner Complaint (ECF No. 1) and the action are dismissed
without prejudice pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure because
Mr. Chrisco failed to prosecute and comply with a court order. 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 pending Motion for Injunctive Relief (ECF No. 6) is
denied as moot.
DATED at Denver, Colorado, this
BY THE COURT:
