Briseno v. Cozza-Rhodes
ORDER dismissing this action, and denying leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal, by Judge Lewis T. Babcock on 3/23/16. (dkals, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 16-cv-00333-GPG
T. K. COZZA-RHODES,
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
Applicant, Juan Briseno, is a prisoner in the custody of the Federal Bureau of
Prisons at a federal prison in Florence, Colorado. Mr. Briseno initiated this action by
filing pro se an Application for a Writ of Habeas Corpus Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241
(ECF No. 1). On February 16, 2016, Magistrate Judge Gordon P. Gallagher entered an
order directing Mr. Briseno to cure certain deficiencies if he wishes to pursue his claims.
In particular, Magistrate Judge Gallagher ordered Mr. Briseno either to pay the $5.00
filing fee for a habeas corpus action or to file a properly supported motion to proceed in
forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. Mr. Briseno was warned that the action
would be dismissed without further notice if he failed to cure the deficiencies within thirty
Mr. Briseno has failed to cure the deficiencies within the time allowed and he has
failed to respond to Magistrate Judge Gallagher’s February 16 order in any way.
Therefore, the action will be dismissed without prejudice for failure to cure the
deficiencies. 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 Applicant 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 habeas corpus application is denied and the action is
dismissed without prejudice pursuant to Rule 41(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure because Mr. Briseno 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.
DATED at Denver, Colorado, this
BY THE COURT:
