TARNELL JONES, Plaintiff-Appellant,
DR. KUPRIVNIKAR; SAN CARLOS FACILITY RULE OF TAKING MEDS, Defendants-Appellees.
(D.C. No. 1:14-CV-01877-LTB) (D. Colo.).
Before HARTZ, McKAY, and MATHESON, Circuit Judges.
ORDER AND JUDGMENT [*]
Scott M. Matheson, Jr. Circuit Judge.
Pro se plaintiff Tarnell Jones is in the custody of the Colorado Department of Corrections. He appeals from the district court's dismissal of his complaint without prejudice under Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b). The district court based the dismissal on Mr. Jones's failure to provide an account statement certified by an authorized prison official to correct a deficient motion to proceed without prepayment of his filing fee under 28 U.S.C. § 1915. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291.
In his appellate brief, Mr. Jones attempts to describe the substance of his claim, but he fails to address whether the district court erred in dismissing his complaint. We discern no error and affirm.
We also deny Mr. Jones's motion to proceed on appeal without prepayment of his filing fee. The appeal lacks merit, and, as in the district court, his motion is deficient.
In sum, we affirm the district court's dismissal of the complaint, and we deny the request for in forma pauperis status.
