The Prison Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (effective April 26, 1996) now REQUIRES
that all prisoners pay the Court’s $500 docket fee plus $5 filing fee (for a total of $505) 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 $505 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 $505 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 $505 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 $505 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 $505 fee is collected, even if an appeal is unsuccessful.
