negative in value. It is a violation of this Order to leave the assets portion of the affidavit blank.
Any papers that Petitioner submits in response to this Order must include the civil action

information required by § 1915(a)(1) may result in the denial of Petitioner’s motion without

Order, Petitioner must submit an affidavit that lists his assets and their value, including, but not
limited to, any funds that currently exist in his inmate account;
