(PC) Hill v. Patterson et al Doc. 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 CYMEYON V. HILL, 12 13 14 15 No. 2:22-cv-1328 AC P Plaintiff, v. ORDER AND FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS S. PATTERSON, et al., Defendant. 16 17 Plaintiff, a civil detainee, is proceeding pro se with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 18 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff has filed an in forma pauperis affidavit in which he indicates that he has 19 no cash. ECF No. 2 at 2. However, plaintiff’s trust account statement reflects that he has a 20 balance of $4,723.29. ECF No. 3. 21 The court may authorize the commencement of an action “without prepayment of fees or 22 security therefor” by an individual who submits an application evidencing an inability to pay such 23 fees or give security therefor. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). Plaintiff has made an inadequate showing of 24 indigence in the application before the court. It will therefore be recommended that the 25 application to proceed in forma pauperis be denied and that plaintiff be required to pay the 26 $402.00 before this action can proceed. 27 28 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court is directed to randomly assign a United States District Judge to this action. 1 Dockets.Justia.com 1 IT IS FURTHER RECOMMENDED that: 2 1. Plaintiff’s motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis, ECF No. 2, be DENIED. 3 2. Plaintiff be given thirty days to pay the filing fee or face dismissal of the case. 4 These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District Judge 5 assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). Within fourteen days 6 after being served with these findings and recommendations, plaintiff may file written objections 7 with the court. Such a document should be captioned “Objections to Magistrate Judge’s Findings 8 and Recommendations.” Plaintiff is advised that failure to file objections within the specified 9 time may waive the right to appeal the District Court’s order.
