IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
RANDALL LAMONT ROLLE,
JUDGE JAMES SHELFER, et al.,
ORDER ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Before the court is the magistrate judge's report and recommendation (doc. 4)
docketed July 14, 2017. The magistrate judge recommends that the plaintiff's case
be dismissed pursuant to the three-strikes provision of 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
In response to the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation, the
plaintiff has filed a motion for clarification, asking whether the filing fee was paid.
The plaintiff explains that (1) he did not file a request for leave to proceed in forma
pauperis, (2) by letter sent June 22, 2017, one week before he filed the case, he
asked his parents to send the filing fee to the court; (3) with his complaint, he
included a note to the clerk stating that the filing fee was going to be mailed from a
Page 2 of 3
separate address; see Doc. 1, p. 14; (4) he received no response to a letter sent to the
clerk on July 21, 2017, requesting a copy of the docket sheet so he could determine
whether the filing fee had been paid; and (5) he filed the case in good faith,
thinking the filing fee had been paid.
The court has now verified with its Financial Specialist that a filing fee for
this case has not been received. The Finance Office has only three receipts for the
plaintiff, all of which were for district-court ($350 and $50) and appellate-court
($505) docketing fees in Case No. 4:17cv134.
Having reviewed the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation, and
having verified that the required docketing fee has not been paid, this court has
determined that the magistrate judge's report and recommendation should be
adopted. Accordingly, it is ORDERED:
1. The magistrate judge's report and recommendation (doc. 4) is hereby
ADOPTED and incorporated by reference into this order.
2. The plaintiff’s complaint and this action are DISMISSED WITHOUT
3. The clerk shall enter judgment stating: “This action is dismissed without
prejudice pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).”
4. The Clerk of Court shall close this case, noting on the docket that this case
