Plaintiff has failed to pay the filing fee or to apply in the manner required by law to proceed in forma pauperis. Under the provisions of the Prison Litigation Reform Act of 1995, if a prisoner wishes to proceed in forma pauperis, the prisoner must file a certified trust account statement and an affidavit of indigence. 28 U.S.C. 1915(a)(2); McGore v. Wrigglesworth, 114 F.3d 601, 605 (6th Cir. 1997). Plaintiff has failed to file the required papers in order to proceed in forma pauperis. Plaintiff is hereby notified of the foregoing deficiencies. Plaintiff is informed that within 30 days from the date of this notice, he must submit the $350.00 filing fee or, alternatively, file the required Prisoner's Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees and Costs and Authorization to Withdraw from the Trust Fund Account, a current Certification/Business Manager's Account Statement, and a statement of Trust Fund Account (or institutional equivalent) for the six-month period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint. See McGore, 114 F.3d at 605.
