FEDERAL HOME LOAN MORTGAGE CORPORATION, Plaintiff,
LEIF R. GUSTAFSON, et al., Defendants.
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
BRIAN A. TSUCHIDA, Magistrate Judge.
Defendant Leif R. Gustafson, proceeding pro se, has filed a Notice of Removal of an unlawful detainer action originating in Whatcom County Superior Court, accompanied by an application to proceed in forma pauperis ("IFP"). Dkt. 1. On May 5, 2015, the Court notified Mr. Gustafson that his IFP application was deficient because he failed to use the correct form. Dkt. 2. The Court provided the standard IFP forms to Mr. Gustafson and directed him to cure his deficient IFP application no later than June 5, 2015. Id. As of June 8, 2015, Mr. Gustafson has failed to do so. Accordingly, the Court recommends Mr. Gustafson's IFP application be denied and that he be directed to pay the filing fee in this case or the case will be dismissed.
A proposed order accompanies this Report and Recommendation. Objections, if any, to this Report and Recommendation must be filed and served no later than June 22, 2015. If no objections are filed, the matter will be ready for the Court's consideration on June 23, 2015. Objections shall not exceed five (5) pages. The failure to timely object may affect the right to appeal.
