Plaintiff RODERICK FRANK FOSTER, a prisoner at Central State Prison in
Macon, Georgia, filed a pro se civil rights complaint under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. (Doc. 1).
Although he moved to proceed in forma pauperis, he failed to include a certified copy of
his prison trust fund account statement. (Doc. 2). The Court, therefore, ordered Plaintiff
to either pay the $400.00 filing fee or submit a certified copy of his prison trust fund
account statement. (Doc. 5). Plaintiff failed to respond. As a result, the Court ordered
Plaintiff to show cause why his case should not be dismissed for failure to comply with the
Court’s previous Order. (Doc. 6). Plaintiff was given twenty-one days from September
19, 2016 to respond. (Doc. 6). Plaintiff has again failed to respond.

failure to comply with the Court’s Orders.
SO ORDERED this 25th day of October, 2016.
