UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
PHILLIP EDWARDS, JR.,
STATE OF GEORGIA, WALMART,
INC., Hwy. 17,
Plaintiff, an inmate at Chatham County Detention Center, has
submitted to the Court for filing a complaint brought pursuant to
42 U.S.C. § 1983. Doc. 1. Plaintiff seeks to proceed in forma pauperis.
Doc. 2. After reviewing plaintiff’s application, the Court granted plaintiff
leave to proceed IFP and ordered him to complete and return copies of
both his Prisoner Trust Fund Account Statement and Consent to
Collection of Fees from Trust Account forms. Doc. 3. Plaintiff, however,
only returned the Prisoner Trust Fund Account Statement. Doc. 4. The
Court ordered him to furnish the Consent to Collection of Fees form or
face a recommendation of dismissal; plaintiff failed to timely comply and
a recommendation of dismissal followed. Docs. 5 & 6. Edwards has,
however, finally returned the signed Consent to Collection of Fees form.
The Report and Recommendation to dismiss his case for
abandonment is therefore VACATED, and his Complaint will be
screened in a subsequent Order.
SO ORDERED, this 17th day of July, 2017.
