ORDER OF DISMISSAL
LEWIS T. BABCOCK, Senior District Judge.
Plaintiffs are in the custody of the Alabama-Etowah County Jail in Gadsden, Alabama. Plaintiffs, acting pro se, initiated this action by filing a civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. In an order entered on April 23, 2014, Magistrate Judge Boyd N. Boland directed Plaintiffs to file their claims on a Court-approved form used in filing prisoner complaints. Magistrate Judge Boland also directed Plaintiffs either to pay the filing fee in full or to submit a separate Prisoner's Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 for each named Plaintiff. Magistrate Judge Boland warned Plaintiffs that the action would be dismissed without further notice if they failed to cure the deficiencies within thirty days.
Plaintiffs have failed to submit the $400 filing fee or in the alternative submit a request to proceed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. They also have failed to submit their claims on a Court-approved form. The action will be dismissed because Plaintiffs have failed to comply with the April 23, 2014 Order within the time allowed.
The Court also certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3) that any appeal from this Order is not taken in good faith, and, therefore, in forma pauperis status will be denied for the purpose of appeal. See Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438 (1962). If Plaintiffs file a notice of appeal he must pay the full $505 appellate filing fee or file a motion to proceed in forma pauperis in the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit within thirty days in accordance with Fed. R. App. P. 24.
The Court acknowledges the pending order in Jo v. Six Unknown Names Agents, et al., No. 14-cv-00700-BNB (D. Colo. Filed Mar. 6, 2014), directing Plaintiff Young Yil Jo to show cause why he should not be subject to filing restrictions and monetary sanctions in this Court. Because the order to show cause was entered after this case was filed, the Court will refrain from addressing filing restrictions and monetary sanctions. Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that the Complaint and action are dismissed without prejudice pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b) for failure to cure all deficiencies and for failure to prosecute. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is denied.
