Entry Dismissing Complaint and Directing Further Proceedings - Plaintiff Angelito C. Mercado's motion to proceed in forma pauperis, [dkt 2], is denied without prejudice because he failed to submit a certified copy of his trust fund account statement (or institutional equivalent) for the 6-month period immediately preceding the filing of his complaint on March 29, 2017, as required by 28 U.S.C. ยง 1915(a)(2). Mercado shall have through April 20, 2017, in which to either pay the $400.00 filing fee or renew his request for in forma pauperis status with the required information. Failure to do so may subject the case to dismissal for failure to comply with Court orders. There is no reason for duplicative lawsuits which drain scarce judicial resources. Accordingly, this action is dismissed without prejudice. Because this complaint is being dismissed as duplicative, Mercado's motion to retain video surveillance, [dkt. 4], is denied. Mercado shall have through April 20, 2017, in which to show cause why Judgment consistent with this Entry should not issue. (See Entry.) Copy to Plaintiff via U.S. Mail. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 4/4/2017. (JLS)
