Additionally, LSR 1-2 and § 1915 specifically require three items be submitted to this court with
a prisoner’s IFP application: (1) a financial certificate signed by an authorized officer of the
institution in which he or she is incarcerated, (2) a copy of his or her inmate trust account statement
for the six-month period prior to filing, and (3) a signed financial affidavit showing an inability to
prepay fees and costs or give security for them.
IT IS ORDERED:
1. The Clerk of Court shall RETAIN Plaintiff Juan Manuel Ramos Rodriguez’s
Complaint (ECF No. 1-1).
2. The Clerk of the Court shall MAIL Plaintiff a blank form Application to Proceed in
Forma Pauperis for incarcerated litigants with instructions.
3. Plaintiff shall have until April 5, 2017, to file the Application to Proceed in Forma
Pauperis, accompanied by a signed and executed financial certificate, a signed and
executed financial affidavit, and a statement of his inmate trust account.
4. Alternatively, Plaintiff shall pay the $400 filing fee, accompanied by a copy of this
Order, on or before April 5, 2017.
5. Plaintiff shall file a certificate of interested parties as required by LR 7.1-1 of the Local
Rules of Practice on or before April 5, 2017.
6. Plaintiff’s failure to comply with this Order by (a) submitting an Application to Proceed
In Forma Pauperis, or (b) paying the $400 filing fee before the April 5, 2017 deadline
will result in a recommendation to the district judge that this case be dismissed.
Dated this 6th day of March, 2017.
