IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 15-cv-02414-LTB
JERMAINE T. MAY,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; and
DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE,
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
On October 29, 2015, Applicant, Jermaine T. May, an inmate at the Florence
High United States Penitentiary, submitted an Application for Writ of Habeas Corpus
Pursuant to 28 USC 2241. As part of the court’s review pursuant to D.C.COLO.LCivR
8.1(b), the court determined that Mr. May’s pleadings were deficient. In an order
entered on November 2, 2015, Magistrate Judge Gordon P. Gallagher directed Mr. May
to cure certain deficiencies if he wished to pursue his claims. Specifically, Magistrate
Judge Gallagher ordered Mr. May to either file a Prisoner’s Motion and Affidavit for
Leave to Proceed Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 in a Habeas Corpus Action or pay the
$5.00 filing fee (ECF No. 3). That Order specifically informed Applicant that the action
would be dismissed without further notice if he failed to cure the deficiencies within thirty
No further pleadings have been filed by Applicant. Accordingly, Applicant has
failed to cure the deficiencies within the time allowed. Therefore, the action will be
dismissed without prejudice for failure to cure the noted deficiencies.
The Court also certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3) that any appeal from
this Order is not taken in good faith, and, therefore, in forma pauperis status is denied
for the purpose of appeal. See Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438 (1962). If
Applicant files a notice of appeal he must also pay the full $505 appellate filing fee or file
a motion to proceed in forma pauperis in the Tenth Circuit within thirty days in
accordance with Fed. R. App. P. 24. Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that the action is dismissed without prejudice pursuant to Fed. R. Civ.
P. 41(b) for failure to cure the deficiencies, for failure to prosecute and for failure to
follow a court order. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is
DATED at Denver, Colorado, this
15th day of December, 2015.
