I. MOTION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS Plaintiff also seeks leave to proceed without prepayment of the $350.00 filing fee or security therefor pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915(a). Based on plaintiff's submissions, the Court finds that plaintiff is unable to prepay the filing fee. Accordingly, the Court GRANTS plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis and waives the initial partial filing fee pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915(b)(1). It is hereby ORDERED that plaintiff's custodian or his designee shall set aside twenty percent (20%) of all deposits made to plaintiff's trust fund account and forward those funds to the Clerk each time the amount set aside exceeds $10.00, until the $350.00 filing fee has been paid in full. 28 U.S.C. 1915(b)(2).

II. ORDER TO SUPPLEMENT Plaintiff, who suffers from an unspecified form of cancer, alleges that on June 6, 2006, defendant Karen Douglas (occupation unknown), instructed a prison guard at Calhoun State Prison to remove plaintiff's mattress. As a result, plaintiff was forced to sleep on the concrete floor. After reviewing plaintiff's complaint, the Court finds that additional information is needed before a proper evaluation of his claims can be made. Accordingly, plaintiff is instructed to supplement his complaint by describing the time period during which he remained in his cell without a mattress and the injuries that he suffered, if any, as a result of the alleged deprivation. Plaintiff is further instructed to explain why he believes that Douglas had plaintiff's mattress confiscated. Plaintiff is hereby given thirty (30) days from receipt of this order to submit a supplement to his complaint, limited to this claim only. No other claims will be considered. If plaintiff fails to respond to this order in a timely manner, this action shall be dismissed. There shall be no service of process until further order of the Court. SO ORDERED, this 13th day of June, 2006. /s/ Richard L. Hodge RICHARD L. HODGE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 2
