TUCKER v. JACKSON STATE PRISON
ORDER: The CLERK is thus ORDERED to administratively close this action, 5:15-cv-0445, as duplicative. Plaintiff shall proceed with his claims under 5:15-cv-467. Ordered by US DISTRICT JUDGE C ASHLEY ROYAL on 2/26/2016. (tlh)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
CIVIL No: 5:15-CV-0445-CAR-MSH
Plaintiff Christopher Tucker, an inmate now confined at Valdosta State Prison, in
Valdosta, Georgia, filed a pleading in this Court in which he expresses his intent to file a
civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Because Plaintiff did not submit his
pleading on a standard complaint form or pay the required filing fee, he was ordered to
recast his complaint and either pre-pay the $350.00 filing fee or file a motion to proceed in
forma pauperis. It appears that Plaintiff did comply with this order, but his pleadings
were filed as new action: Tucker v. Merritt, 5:15-cv-467-MTT. The CLERK is thus
ORDERED to administratively close this action, 5:15-cv-0445, as duplicative. Plaintiff
shall proceed with his claims under 5:15-cv-467.
SO ORDERED this 26th day of February, 2015.
