IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
T.C. OUTLAW, Warden,
Federal Correctional Complex,
Forrest City, Arkansas
The Court respectfully declines to adopt Magistrate Judge Deere's
recommendation to dismiss, Document No. 4, because, as Keith noted in his
objection, Document No.5, he has paid the filing fee on time. Judge Deere was
not asleep. When she filed her recommendation, the docket did not reflect
Keith's objection prompted the Clerk to investigate; he
discovered that the filing fee had been paid but not docketed. So the payment
was entered as Document No. 6, but the entry was dated 21 September 2012,
when payment was received. This was correct because the Court had ordered
Keith to pay by a date certain. Document No.3. The electronic receipt for
Document No. 6 (available by clicking on the black dot) confirms the timing of
things, as does the order of all the docket entries: 1, 2, 3, 6, 4 & 5. The Court
returns the case to Judge Deere for further proceedings in the normal course.
