    HERNANDEZ v. CENTURY CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION Doc. 7 Case 3:07-cv-00185-LC-EMT Document 7 Filed 05/11/2007 Page 1 of 2 Page 1 of 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA PENSACOLA DIVISION PETER HERNANDEZ, Plaintiff, vs. CENTURY CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION, Defendant. _____________________________/ ORDER This cause is before the court upon Plaintiff's filing a civil rights complaint under 42 U.S.C. 1983 and a motion to proceed in forma pauperis (Docs. 1, 2). Initially, the court notes that Plaintiff filed hundreds of exhibits with his complaint. Plaintiff is advised that he should not file exhibits as evidentiary support for his complaint. The court will notify Plaintiff when legal memoranda and exhibits are necessary, such as prior to trial or in conjunction with a motion for summary judgment. Therefore, the clerk will be directed to return the exhibits to Plaintiff. Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis is denied, without prejudice, as it is incomplete. The instructions require that a printout of the inmate's prison account be provided which covers the six-month period prior to the filing of the complaint. In this case, as the complaint was filed April 30, 2007 (see Doc. 1 at 8), the period involved is from October 30, 2006 through April 30, 2007. Although Plaintiff submitted a Prisoner Consent Form and Financial Certificate signed by an authorized prison official, as well as a printout from Plaintiff's inmate account, the documents reflect his account balance for the six-month period ending January 29, 2007, instead of April 30, 2007 (see Doc. 2). Thus, before this matter may proceed, Plaintiff must either pay the filing fee of $350.00 or obtain leave to proceed in forma pauperis by filing a fully and properly Case No. 3:07cv185/LAC/EMT Dockets.Justia.com Case 3:07-cv-00185-LC-EMT Document 7 Filed 05/11/2007 Page 2 of 2 Page 2 of 2 completed application and attachments.

Plaintiff's failure to comply with this order may result in the dismissal of this case. DONE AND ORDERED this 11th day of May 2007. The clerk is directed to forward an in forma pauperis application to Plaintiff. This case number should be written on the application. Additionally, the clerk shall return Plaintiff's Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. 2) is DENIED without /s/ Elizabeth M. Timothy ELIZABETH M.
