Simpson v. Agatone et al
ORDER Granting Plaintiff's 11 Motion to Extend Time to File Application to Proceed in Forma Pauperis. Deadline: 7/16/2017. Signed by Magistrate Judge Carl W. Hoffman on 6/27/2017. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - SLD)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
F. AGATONE, et al.,
Case No. 2:15-cv-00254-RFB-CWH
Presently before the court is Plaintiff Derrick Simpson’s motion for enlargement of time
(ECF No. 11), filed on June 13, 2017. Plaintiff requests a 30-day extension of time to file his
application to proceed in forma pauperis, which was due on June 16, 2017. Having read and
considered Plaintiff’s motion, and good cause appearing for the extension, the court will grant
Plaintiff’s motion, making the deadline July 16, 2017.
The court notes that while Plaintiff’s motion for enlargement of time was pending, Plaintiff
filed his application to proceed in forma pauperis (ECF No. 12) on June 23, 2017. Given that it
was filed before July 16, 2017, the application is timely. The court will enter a separate order on
this application. If the court grants the application to proceed in forma pauperis, the court must
screen Plaintiff’s complaint under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2) to identify cognizable claims and dismiss
claims that are frivolous, malicious, fail to state a claim on which relief may be granted, or seek
monetary relief from a defendant who is immune from such relief.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Plaintiff Derrick Simpson’s motion for enlargement of
time (ECF No. 11) is GRANTED.
DATED: June 27, 2017
C.W. Hoffman, Jr.
United States Magistrate Judge
