United States District Court, D. Colorado
ORDER DIRECTING PLAINTIFF TO CURE DEFICIENCIES AND FILE AMENDED COMPLAINT
Gordon P. Gallagher United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff, David McKay, has filed pro se a Title VII Complaint against the Social Security Administration. (ECF No. 1). He has also submitted an Application to Proceed in District Court without Prepaying Fees or Costs. (ECF No. 3). The court must construe the Complaint liberally because Mr. McKay is not represented by an attorney. See Haines v. Kerner, 404 U.S. 519, 520-21 (1972); Hall v. Bellmon, 935 F.2d 1106, 1110 (10th Cir. 1991). However, the court should not be an advocate for a pro se litigant. See Hall, 935 F.2d at 1110.
