Description

THE FEE FOR A COMPLAINT IS $400.00 WHICH MAY BE PAID BY CASH (IF PAYING IN PERSON), MONEY ORDER, BANK CERTIFIED CHECK OR PERSONAL CHECK. IF YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY THE $400.00 FEE, YOU MAY ASK THE COURT TO WAIVE THE FILING FEE BY COMPLETING AND SUBMITTING A REQUEST TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS DISCLOSING YOUR INCOME AND FINANCES. You must submit three copies of the complaint to the Pro Se Office: one must contain your original signature in ink and two may be copies of the complaint. Important: any exhibits attached to the original complaint must also be attached to the copies of the complaint. You must keep a copy of whatever you submit to the Court for yourself. In some types of actions, you are entitled to a trial by jury. However, you lose your right to a jury trial if you do not ask for it early enough. If you want a jury trial, you must write "JURY TRIAL DEMANDED" on the front page of your complaint to the right of the caption, above or below the word "complaint". You can also demand a jury trial within 14 days of service of the defendant's answer. See Rule 38(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. NOTICE REGARDING COSTS Under Rule 54(d)(1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Unless a federal statute, these rules, or a court order provides otherwise, costs ­ other than attorney's fees ­ should be allowed to the prevailing party. This rule provides that the prevailing party is entitled to recover costs from their adversary. These costs can range from several hundred to several thousand dollars or more. The Court will generally award costs, upon application, to the prevailing party. If you do not prevail, costs can be awarded against you even if you are pro se and were granted in forma pauperis status when you commenced the action. If you have any questions regarding this provision of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, please contact the Pro Se Office at 718-613-2665. rev.4/23/13 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK ___________________________________ ___________________________________ ___________________________________ NAME OF PLAINTIFF(S) v. ___________________________________ ___________________________________ ___________________________________ NAME OF DEFENDANT(S) This action is brought for discrimination in employment pursuant to (check only those that apply): __________ Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as codified, 42 U.S.C. §§ 2000e to 2000e-17 (amended in 1972, 1978 and by the Civil Rights Act of 1991, Pub.
