Plaintiff, proceeding pro se, has filed a civil rights complaint under 42 U.S.C. 1983. (Doc. 1). Local court rules provide that no "civil action commenced by pro se litigants under 42 U.S.C. 1983, 28 U.S.C. 1331, or 1346, shall be considered by the court unless the appropriate forms have been properly completed and filed by the litigant." N.D. Fla. Loc. R. 5.1(J)(2). Plaintiff must, therefore, submit an "amended complaint," clearly designated as such, on court forms which will be provided to her by the Clerk of Court. As a secondary problem, Plaintiff has failed to file a motion to proceed in forma pauperis and affidavit of financial status or pay the filing fee. The Clerk shall send the form motion and affidavit, which must be completed in full, with the complaint form. It is, therefore, ORDERED: CASE NO. 1:08cv198-SPM/AK Page 2 of 2 1.
