1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 3 GEROLD CENTENO, 4 Plaintiff 5 6 Case No. 2:23-cv-02131-JAD-DJA ORDER v. STEVEN GRIERSON, et al., 7 Defendants 8 9 I. DISCUSSION 10 On January 11, 2024, the Court ordered Plaintiff to either pay the $405 filing fee 11 or file a complete application to proceed in forma pauperis by March 15, 2024. (ECF No. 12 5). Plaintiff subsequently filed three motions for an extension of time, indicating that the 13 NDOC had not yet provided him a financial certificate or a six-month account statement, 14 even though he had actually attached those documents to his first amended complaint. 15 (ECF Nos. 9, 10, 11, 8 at 17-24). The Court granted Plaintiff’s motion and gave him until 16 April 15, 2024, to file a complete application to proceed in forma pauperis. (ECF No. 12). 17 Plaintiff has filed two financial certificates and two six-month account statements, 18 but he has not filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis. (ECF Nos. 13, 14). In 19 light of Plaintiff’s filings, the Court will grant Plaintiff one final opportunity to file a complete 20 application to proceed in forma pauperis, or, in the alternative, pay the $405 filing fee on 21 or before June 7, 2024. 22 II. CONCLUSION 23 It is therefore ordered the Court grants Plaintiff until June 7, 2024, to either pay 24 the full $405 filing fee or file a fully complete application to proceed in forma pauperis with 25 all three required documents: (1) a completed application with the inmate’s two signatures 26 on page 3, (2) a completed financial certificate that is signed both by the inmate and the 27 prison or jail official, and (3) a copy of the inmate’s trust fund account statement for the 28 previous six-month period. 1 Plaintiff is cautioned that this action will be subject to dismissal without prejudice if 2 Plaintiff fails to timely comply with this order. A dismissal without prejudice allows Plaintiff 3 to refile the case with the Court, under a new case number, when Plaintiff can file a 4 complete application to proceed in forma pauperis or pay the required filing fee. 5 6 DATED THIS 8th day of May 2024. 7 8 UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 -2-
