IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 15-cv-02311-GPG
GIRL SCOUTS OF COLORADO,
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Plaintiff, Toni Williams-Bullock, initiated this action by filing pro se a Title VII
Complaint and Jury Demand (ECF No. 1) and an Application to Proceed in District Court
Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Long Form) (ECF No. 2). On October 20, 2015,
Magistrate Judge Gordon P. Gallagher entered an order directing Ms. Williams-Bullock to
cure a deficiency if she wishes to pursue her claims. Specifically, Magistrate Judge
Gallagher directed Ms. Williams-Bullock to file an amended Application to Proceed in
District Court Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Long Form) that is signed. Ms.
Williams-Bullock was warned that the action would be dismissed without further notice if
she failed to cure the deficiency within thirty days.
Ms. Williams-Bullock has failed to cure the deficiency within the time allowed and
she has failed to respond in any way to Magistrate Judge Gallagher’s October 20 order.
Therefore, the action will be dismissed without prejudice for failure to cure the deficiency.
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
ORDERED that the Title VII Complaint and Jury Demand and the action are
dismissed without prejudice pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure because Ms. Williams-Bullock failed to cure the deficiency 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 Application to Proceed in District Court Without
Prepaying Fees or Costs (Long Form) (ECF No. 2) is denied as moot.
DATED at Denver, Colorado, this
BY THE COURT:
