No. 04-1372
MR. QUINTANA; MR. RULET; Mr. SANCHEZ; LT. MESTIPUST; WARDEN GUNJA; and NORTH CENTRAL REGIONAL OFFICE OF FEDERAL BUREAU OF PRISONS, and executives or employees involved or parties at the U.S. Penitentiary Florence,


(D.C. No. 04-Z-735)


Before KELLY, HENRY, and TYMKOVICH, Circuit Judges.(**)

Wade W. Slaughter, a federal prisoner in the custody of the United States Department of Prisons, appeals the district court's order dismissing his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action without prejudice. The district court's dismissal was based on Mr. Slaughter's failure to submit a certified trust statement for the entire six-month period preceding the filing of his complaint and his failure to name the same defendants in the caption and the body of the complaint and in the caption and affidavit for leave to proceed in forma pauperis.

In an April 14, 2004 order, the magistrate judge notified Mr. Slaughter of these deficiencies and allowed him thirty days to cure them. Mr. Slaughter failed to do so, and, on May 28, 2004, the district court dismissed his complaint without prejudice to the refiling of a corrected complaint, motion, and affidavit.

In his appellate brief, Mr. Slaughter fails to explain his failure to file a corrected complaint in response to the court's order. We therefore conclude that the district court's dismissal was proper.

Accordingly, we AFFIRM the district court's dismissal of Mr. Slaughter's

complaint without prejudice.(1)

Entered for the Court,

Robert H. Henry

Circuit Judge
