The court concludes that the reasons advanced by Plaintiff in his response do not demonstrate good cause for his failure to comply. Nevertheless, to accord Plaintiff the leniency generally afforded pro se litigants, the court will give Plaintiff one final opportunity to establish that he is entitled to proceed in forma pauperis in this action by filing a fully and properly completed motion. Plaintiff is reminded that the Affidavit of Financial Status is signed under penalty of perjury. In the alternative to filing an application to proceed in forma pauperis, Plaintiff may pay the $350.00 filing fee in full. Accordingly, it is ORDERED: 1. form. 2. pauperis.
