However, plaintiff failed to include a civil rights complaint or a petition for writ of habeas corpus. The application to proceed in forma pauperis is, by itself, insufficient to initiate an action in this court. The court advises plaintiff that the Local Rules require plaintiffs appearing in pro se, such as this plaintiff, to file all of their complaints and petitions on the court's approved forms. LSR 2-1("[a] civil rights complaint filed by a person who is not represented by counsel shall be on the form provided by this court."). IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Clerk SHALL SEND to plaintiff the approved forms for filing a civil rights lawsuits under 42 U.S.C. 1983.
