NOTICE TO PRISONERS CONCERNING CIVIL APPEALS
The Prison Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (effective April 26, 1996) now
REQUIRES that all prisoners pay the Court’s $450 docket fee plus $5 filing fee (for a total
of $455) when appealing any civil judgment.
If you wish to appeal in a civil case that Act now requires that upon filing a notice of
appeal you either:
Pay the total $455 fee to the clerk of the district court from which this case
arrange to have a prison official certify to the district court from which the
appeal arose the average monthly deposits and balances in your prison account
for each of the six months preceding the filing of a notice of appeal.
If you proceed with option (2) above, the Act requires that the district court order you
to pay an initial partial fee of at least 20% of the greater of either the average monthly
deposits or of the average monthly balances shown in your prison account. The remainder of
the total $455 fee will thereafter be deducted from your prison account each month that your
account balance exceeds $10. Each such monthly deduction shall equal 20% of all deposits
to your prison account during the previous month, until the total $455 fee is paid. (If your
prison account statement shows that you cannot pay even the required initial partial fee, your
appeal may nevertheless proceed, BUT THE TOTAL $455 FEE WILL BE ASSESSED
AGAINST AND WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM FUTURE DEPOSITS TO YOUR PRISON
Fees are not refundable, regardless of outcome, and deductions from your prison
account will continue until the total $455 fee is collected, even if an appeal is unsuccessful.
