Moreno v. Judd et al
ORDER to Cure Deficiency by Magistrate Judge Stephan M. Vidmar. Plaintiff must cure the deficiencies designated herein no later than February 8, 2018. (am)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
No. 18-cv-0014 JB/SMV
BETTY JUDD and FNU LNU,
ORDER TO CURE DEFICIENCY
On January 5, 2018, Plaintiff Emiliano Moreno submitted a Prisoner’s Civil Rights
Complaint [Doc. 1] and a copy of his inmate account statement for the preceding six months
[Doc. 2]. The submission of Plaintiff’s financial information appears to indicate his intent to
request leave to proceed without prepayment of costs and fees pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. See
§ 1915(a)(2) (requiring a prisoner seeking to bring a civil action without prepayment of fees or
security therefor, to file a “certified copy of the trust fund account statement (or institutional
equivalent) for the prisoner for the 6-month period immediately preceding the filing of the
complaint”). Plaintiff’s filing is deficient, however, because he has failed to submit “an affidavit
that includes a statement of all assets such prisoner possesses that the person is unable to pay such
fees or give security therefor.” § 1915(a)(1). Plaintiff must cure this deficiency by submitting
the requisite affidavit within 30 days of the date of entry of this order.
Plaintiff must include the civil action number (No. 18-cv-0014 JB/SMV) of this case on all
papers that he files in this proceeding. Failure to cure the designated deficiency within 30 days
from the date of entry of this Order may result in dismissal of this action without further notice.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Plaintiff cure the deficiency designated above no
later than February 8, 2018.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court mail to Plaintiff, together with a
copy of this order, a form Application to Proceed in District Court without Prepaying Fees or
IT IS SO ORDERED.
