IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
MARK S. LEWIS
Case No. 3:17-cv-00204
JUSTIN BARNES, HEATHER
STEELE, PARAGOULD PAROLE
Plaintiff Mark S. Lewis, an inmate in the Arkansas Department of Corrections Pine Bluff
Unit, filed a pro se complaint (Dkt. No. 1) pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 alleging that defendants
Justin Barnes, Heather Steele, and the Paragould Parole Office violated his constitutional rights
when his parole was denied. Mr. Lewis did not submit a filing fee. Pursuant to the Prison
Litigation Reform Act, in order for Mr. Lewis to commence a federal action without prepayment
of fees, he must submit a calculation sheet prepared and signed by an authorized official of the
incarcerating facility, which reflects the deposits and monthly balances in Mr. Lewis’ trust
account at the facility during the six-month period immediately preceding the filing of the
complaint. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2). Mr. Lewis has neither submitted a motion to proceed
in forma pauperis nor a completed calculation sheet.
Within 30 days of the entry of this Order, Mr. Lewis must either: (1) pay the $400 filing
fee in full or (2) file a properly completed application to proceed in forma pauperis for the Court’s
review and consideration. If Mr. Lewis does not pay the filing fee or submit a properly completed
in forma pauperis application within 30 days, this action may be dismissed without prejudice.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to send Mr. Lewis a blank application to proceed in forma
pauperis, including calculation sheet.
So ordered this the 7th day of March, 2018.
Kristine G. Baker
