IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
MYRTIS PAULO HART,
No. 21-cv-1108 JB-KRS
SAHARA HOTEL, et al,
ORDER TO SEAL PLEADING AND CURE DEFICIENCY
This matter comes before the Court on Myrtis Paulo Hart’s pro se Claim for Damage,
Injury, or Death (Doc. 1) (Complaint). Plaintiff seeks damages from a hotel that allegedly turned
him away based on his race. The pleading includes Plaintiff’s date of birth, which should not
appear on the public docket. In accordance with Fed. R. Civ. P. 5.2, the Court will direct the
Clerk’s Office to seal the opening pleading and file a public copy with the date of birth redacted.
Plaintiff must refrain from including his date of birth or social security number in future filings.
If he continues to file documents with identifying information, the protections of Rule 5.2 may be
deemed waived. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 5.2(h).
Within thirty (30) days of entry of this Order, Plaintiff must also prepay the $402 civil fee,
or alternatively, file a motion to proceed in forma pauperis. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2). Any in
forma pauperis motion must attach an inmate account statement reflecting transactions between
May 15, 2021 and November 15, 2021. If Plaintiff has not been detained for six months, he must
submit a statement reflecting transactions between the date of his arrest/detention and November
15, 2021, when he filed the case. All filings must include the case number (21-cv-1108 JB-KRS).
The failure to timely comply with this Order will result in dismissal of this case without further
