By order filed April 6, 2006, the Court dismissed the above-titled action, on the ground that the Clerk had not received from plaintiff the filing fee as of the previously-set deadline of March 31, 2006. Also, on April 6, 2006, the Clerk entered judgment on the Court's order of dismissal. Thereafter, on April 10, 2006, the Clerk received the filing fee by mail; according to the postmark on the envelope, plaintiff mailed the filing fee to the Clerk on March 31, 2006.1 Because plaintiff has paid the required filing fee, the Court hereby SETS ASIDE the
