IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
NO. 2:12CV00069 JLH/BD
AVIANT, et al.
On April 16, 2012, plaintiff Frederick Banks, a federal inmate housed at the Federal
Correctional Institution in Forrest City, Arkansas (“FCIFC”), filed this case alleging that FCIFC
employees violated his right to equal protection of the law. Banks filed an application to proceed
in forma pauperis, but he was ineligible for in forma pauperis status because he had filed three prior
lawsuits that were dismissed for failure to state a claim. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
On April 23, 2012, Banks was ordered to pay the statutory filing fee within thirty days or risk
dismissal of his case. In spite of this warning, Banks has not paid the filing fee, and the time to do
so has passed.
Accordingly, Banks’s claims are DISMISSED, without prejudice, for failure to comply with
the Court’s April 23, 2012 Order to pay the filing fee. See Local Rule 5.5(c)(2).
IT IS SO ORDERED this 15th day of June, 2012.
