UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
CCS BAKER, et al.,
This habeas matter under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 comes before the Court on petitioner’s
application (ECF No. 1) to proceed in forma pauperis.
The pauper application is incomplete. Under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2) and Local Rule
LSR1-2, a petitioner must attach both a properly executed financial certificate and an inmate
account statement for the past six months. Petitioner attached neither.
The application therefore will be denied without prejudice. Petitioner either must pay
the $5.00 filing fee or file a properly completed pauper application within thirty (30) days of
entry of this order.
IT THEREFORE IS ORDERED that petitioner's application (ECF No. 1) to proceed in
forma pauperis is DENIED without prejudice.
IT FURTHER IS ORDERED that petitioner shall have thirty (30) days within which to
either pay the $5.00 filing fee or file a new and properly completed application to proceed in
forma pauperis together with a properly executed financial certificate and an inmate account
If petitioner fails to either pay the filing fee or submit a properly completed new pauper
application with all required attachments within thirty (30) days, the action will be dismissed
without further advance notice. This is the last advance notice that petitioner will receive prior
to a dismissal of this action.1
The Clerk of Court shall SEND petitioner two copies of an in forma pauperis application
form for incarcerated persons along with one copy of the instructions for same.
DATED: October 4, 2017.
HOWARD D. MCKIBBEN
United States District Judge
The Court is denying the pauper application without also dismissing the action without prejudice
because of potential statute of limitations ramifications based upon the procedural history in petitioner’s case.
However, if petitioner fails to timely either pay the filing fee or submit a properly completed pauper application
with all required attachments, the action will be dismissed without further advance notice notwithstanding any
potential adverse limitations consequences resulting from the dismissal.
