Plaintiff, proceeding pro se, has filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis

application, proposed complaint, the governing law and the balance of the record, the Court
ORDERS as follows:
Plaintiff’s application to proceed IFP, Dkt. 4, is DENIED. Plaintiff’s

Plaintiff is GRANTED LEAVE TO AMEND, and shall have 30 days from the
date of this Order to correct the deficiency. Plaintiff is advised that this case may be subject to
dismissal if he does not respond to this Order or fails to correct the deficiency.
