IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
CASE NO. 2:17-CV-252-WKW
Before the court is the Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (Doc. # 5),
to which Plaintiff Adam Castleberry filed objections (Doc. # 5). The court has
conducted an independent and de novo review of those portions of the
Recommendation to which objection is made. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b).
The Recommendation favored dismissal of Mr. Castleberry’s complaint under
28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1)(A) for his failure to pay the initial partial filing fee. Mr.
Castleberry objected to this disposition on the grounds that he had filed multiple
requests to pay the fee from his prisoner account, and that he planned to send in
another such request.
On this basis, the Magistrate Judge then granted Mr.
Castleberry an extension, ordering that he pay the partial fee on or before July 28,
2017. (Doc. # 6.) Mr. Castleberry has not paid the fee, so the Recommendation is
due to be adopted.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED as follows:
The Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (Doc. # 4) is
Mr. Castleberry’s objections (Doc. # 5) are OVERRULED; and
This case is DISMISSED without prejudice for Plaintiff’s failure to
pay the initial partial filing fee.
A final judgment will be entered separately.
DONE this 5th day of September, 2017.
/s/ W. Keith Watkins
