IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CASE NO. 4:16-CV-476-JLH-BD
ROPER, et al.
Orlando Torey, an inmate at the Faulkner County Detention Center, filed this
lawsuit without the help of a lawyer under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. (Docket entry #2) Mr.
Torey, who is proceeding in forma pauperis, has moved to voluntarily dismiss the claims
raised in this lawsuit. He asks that the Court order jail officials not to collect the
remaining filing fee from his jail account. (#5) The motion (#5) is GRANTED, in part,
and DENIED, in part.
Mr. Torey’s claims are DISMISSED, without prejudice. Under the Prison
Litigation Reform Act, however, the Court is not authorized to direct prison officials not
to collect the filing fee for the instant complaint. See In re Tyler, 110 F.3d 528, 529-30
(8th Cir. 1997) (under Prison Litigation Reform Act, prisoners are responsible for filing
fees the moment the civil action is filed).
The Clerk of the Court is directed to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 25th day of July, 2016.
