Defendant Laura Castillo filed a motion to proceed in forma pauperis (IFP) in this civil matter removed from state court. (Dkt. 1.) However, she failed to sign and date the application and Written Consent for Payment, to identify any viable means of support for necessities such as food and shelter, or to explain how her daily needs are met. By Order dated September 10, 2014, the Court directed defendant Castillo to file a completed IFP application within twenty days of the date of the Order.
To date, the Court has not received a response to its Order or a completed IFP application. Accordingly, the Court recommends the motion to proceed IFP (Dkt. 1) be DENIED. This action should proceed in this Court only if a removing party pays the $400 filing fee within thirty (30) days after entry of the Court's Order adopting this Report and Recommendation. If no filing fee is paid within thirty days of the Court's Order, this matter should be remanded back to state court and the file in this case closed.
