UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
LEO B. MARCHETTI,
NYE COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT,
Case No. 2:16-cv-01792-JAD-CWH
In reviewing the docket in this case, it came to the court’s attention that Plaintiff Leo B.
Marchetti submitted a letter and what appear to be case-initiating documents to the court on July
27, 2016. (ECF No. 1-1.) Plaintiff did not pay the filing fee for this case or file an application to
proceed in forma pauperis.
If Plaintiff is unable to pay the filing fee in this case, Plaintiff must complete an application
to proceed in forma pauperis under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1) and Local Special Rule (“LSR”) 1-1.
The court will retain Plaintiff’s initiating documents (ECF No. 1-1), but will not file them until the
matter of the payment of the filing fee is resolved.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court must send Plaintiff the
approved form application to proceed in forma pauperis, as well as the document titled
“Information and Instructions for Filing an In Forma Pauperis Application.”
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that by May 24, 2017, Plaintiff must either: (1) file a
complete application to proceed in forma pauperis in compliance with 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1) and
LRS 1-1; or (2) pay the full $400 fee for a civil action, which includes the $350 filing fee and the
$50 administrative fee. Plaintiff is advised that failure to comply with this order will result in a
recommendation that his case be dismissed.
DATED: April 25, 2017
