Andrews v. Pfister et al
MEMORANDUM Order: For the reasons stated in this memorandum order, this case will be reassigned. Signed by the Honorable Milton I. Shadur on 10/10/2017:Mailed notice(clw, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
EUGENE ANDREWS (K-56087),
CARRIE ANDERSON, Officer of the
Administrative Review Board Office, et al.,
Case No. 16 C 7671
Pro se prisoner plaintiff Eugene Andrews ("Andrews") has taken an appeal from what he
has mistakenly described as this Court's August 16, 2017 order of dismissal of this action (in
fact, the memorandum order of dismissal was entered on August 21). This Court has printed out
copies of Andrews' self-prepared appeal documents and, most importantly for present purposes,
a copy of our Court of Appeals' September 29, 2017 "PLRA Fee Notice and Order," which
concluded with these paragraphs:
Further, this appeal is subject to the Prison Litigation Reform Act. Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that all other proceedings in this appeal are SUSPENDED
pending the assessment and payment of any necessary fees. See Newlin v.
Helman, 123 F.3d 429, 434 (7th Cir. 1997). The court will take no further action
in this action under the fee statement is resolved.
Neither party should tender any brief or motion that is not related to appellant's
fee status on appeal. Appellee is under no obligation either to file a brief or to
respond to any such motion filed by appellant. Any motion not related to
appellant's fee status will be deemed denied without further court action.
Regrettably this Court lacks any supporting legal staff, and nearly all of its calendar has
been reassigned to its colleagues under the District Court's computer-driven random assignment
system. Because it cannot now be determined what the outcome of the Court of Appeals'
September 29 order will be, and because this Court lacks the resources to deal with the matter in
any event, this Court recommends to the Executive Committee that all future proceedings in this
action be reassigned to another judge on this District Court under the same computer-generated
random assignment system.
