UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
DONALD ROTSIN BARREN,
Case No. 2:19-cv-00142-APG-VCF
JAMES DZURENDA, et al.,
This action began with a pro se civil rights complaint filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §
1983 by a state prisoner. Plaintiff submitted an application to proceed in forma pauperis
for prisoners. (ECF No. 1.) However, Plaintiff has since filed a change of address,
indicating that he is no longer incarcerated. (ECF No. 18.) As such, the Court denies
Plaintiff’s application to proceed in forma pauperis for prisoners as moot. The Court now
directs Plaintiff to file an application to proceed in forma pauperis by a non-prisoner within
thirty (30) days from the date of this order or pay the full filing fee of $400.
Plaintiff has also filed two motions requesting that the Court issue an order for the
United States Marshalls to serve the Defendants. (ECF Nos. 13, 16.) After Plaintiff files
an application to proceed in forma pauperis by a non-prisoner or pays the full filing fee of
$400, the Court will issue a subsequent order addressing service. As such, the Court
denies Plaintiff’s motions without prejudice.
Finally, the Defendants filed a motion requesting that the Court amend its order
setting an early inmate mediation conference in this case. (ECF No. 19.) The motion
indicates that because Plaintiff is no longer incarcerated, the attorney general’s office
could not facilitate Plaintiff’s participation in the mediation conference. (Id.) The parties
have participated in the mediation conference, and the Court denies the motion as moot.
For the foregoing reasons, IT IS ORDERED the Clerk of the Court WILL SEND
Plaintiff the approved form application to proceed in forma pauperis by a non-prisoner, as
well as the document entitled information and instructions for filing an in forma pauperis
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that within thirty (30) days from the date of this order,
Plaintiff will either: (1) file a fully complete application to proceed in forma pauperis for
non-prisoners; or (2) pay the full filing fee of $400.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, if Plaintiff fails to timely comply with this order,
the Court will dismiss this case without prejudice.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, Plaintiff’s motions for service by the United
States Marshalls (ECF Nos. 13, 16) are DENIED without prejudice. The Court will issue
an order addressing service after Plaintiff files a fully complete application to proceed in
forma pauperis for non-prisoners or pays the full filing fee of $400.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendants motion to amend the Court’s ordering
setting the early inmate mediation conference (ECF No. 19.) is DENIED as moot.
DATED THIS ___ day of October 2020.
