Mr. Chandler filed a pro se Complaint (Doc. No. 2) pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, with an
Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees and Affidavit. (Doc. No. 1). Mr. Chandler’s
Application is incomplete and cannot be granted.
An inmate seeking in forma pauperis status must submit a Calculation of Initial Payment
of Filing Fees sheet, prepared and signed by an authorized officer of the Detention Facility and
“a certified copy of the trust fund account statement for the prisoner for the 6-month period
immediately preceding the filing of the complaint . . . obtained from the appropriate official” of the
facility where the inmate is confined. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b).
Plaintiff is directed to submit within thirty (30) days from the date of this Order either the
$400 filing fee1 or a proper and complete Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis, with a
calculation sheet and certified copy of his trust fund account statement for the preceding six months.
Mr. Chandler’s failure to comply with this Order may result in the dismissal of his case without
prejudice. The Clerk of the Court shall mail to Mr. Chandler an Application to Proceed Without
Prepayment of Fees and calculation sheet.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that:
Effective May 1, 2013, the cost for filing a new civil case is $400. The increase is due to
a new $50 administrative fee, which does not apply to persons granted in forma pauperis status
under 28 U.S.C. § 1915.
Mr. Chandler’s Application to Proceed Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Doc. No.
1) is DENIED.
The Clerk shall mail to Mr. Chandler an Application to Proceed Without Prepaying
Fees or Costs and calculation sheet.
Mr. Chandler shall submit within thirty (30) days from the entry date of this Order
either: (1) the $400 statutory filing fee; or (2) a proper and complete Application to Proceed Without
Prepayment of Fees and Affidavit, with the required calculation sheet and certified copy of his trust
fund account statement for the preceding six months. Failure to do so may result in dismissal of this
action without prejudice.
