On June 19, 2009 the c o u rt, in accordance with the provisions contained in 28 U.S.C. 1915(a)(2), directed P la in tif f to submit an account statement reflecting the average monthly balances and average m o n th ly deposits to his inmate account for the six month period immediately preceding the f ilin g of his complaint.

(Doc. No. 5.) Plaintiff submitted a n o th e r inmate account statement on July 1, 2009. (Doc. No. 6.) This statement, however, w a s identical to the one submitted by Plaintiff on June 24, 2009.1 Consequently, on July 8, The account information provided by Plaintiff reflects the financial activity in his inmate account only as of January 1, 2009.
