UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
LAS VEGAS METROPOLITAN POLICE
DEPARTMENT et al.,
On May 4, 2016, the Court granted Plaintiff’s motion to voluntarily dismiss this
case. (ECF No. 4). On September 30, 2016, Plaintiff submitted an application to proceed
in forma pauperis, an amended complaint, and a motion for leave to reopen the case and
file his first amended complaint. (ECF No. 6, 6-2, 7). On October 12, 2016, Plaintiff filed
a motion to inform of state waiver of jurisdiction to federal jurisdiction. (ECF No. 8).
Case No. 2:16-cv-00752-RFB-NJK
The Court now denies the motion to reopen this case and file his first amended
complaint. (ECF No. 7). Plaintiff voluntarily dismissed this case. If Plaintiff wants to
pursue allegations in his amended complaint, he may file a new application to proceed in
forma pauperis and a complaint in a new case with the Clerk of Court. As such, the
application to proceed in forma pauperis (ECF No. 6) is denied without prejudice to file
an application to proceed in forma pauperis in a new case.
For the foregoing reasons, it is ordered that the application to proceed in forma
pauperis (ECF No. 6) is denied without prejudice.
It is further ordered that the motion for leave to reopen case (ECF No. 7) is denied.
It is further ordered that the motion of state waiver to federal jurisdiction (ECF No.
8) is denied.

not file anymore documents in this closed case.
