ORDER dismissing this case without prejudice; and certifying that an in forma pauperis appeal would not be taken in good faith. Signed by Judge Kristine G. Baker on 1/17/2023. (jbh)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
Case No. 4:21-cv-00661-KGB
BRENT HOUSTON, et al.
Plaintiff Christopher Scott, an inmate at the Saline County Detention Center, filed a pro
se complaint on July 22, 2021 (Dkt. No. 1). On October 8, 2021, the Court denied as incomplete
Mr. Scott’s application to proceed in forma pauperis (Dkt. No. 4). The Court directed Mr. Scott
either to: (1) pay the $402.00 filing fee in full; or (2) file a properly completed application to
proceed in forma pauperis within 30 days, or by Monday, November 8, 2021 (Id.). Mr. Scott
was advised that, if he failed to do so timely, this case would be dismissed without prejudice.
Local Rule 5.5.(c)(2) of the Eastern and Western Districts of Arkansas (“If any communication
from the Court to a pro se plaintiff is not responded to within thirty (30) days, the case may be
dismissed without prejudice.”). A copy of the Court’s October 8, 2021 Order was mailed to Mr.
Scott at his address of record.
As of the date of this Order, Mr. Scott has not complied with the Court’s Order of October
8, 2021, and the time for doing so has passed. Accordingly, this case is dismissed without
prejudice. The Court certifies, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), that an in forma pauperis
appeal would not be taken in good faith.
So ordered this 17th of January, 2023.
