UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
ERIC JAMES BRANDEL, #421441,
Case No. 21-cv-10103
Hon. Matthew F. Leitman
MDOC, et al.,
OPINION AND ORDER DISMISSING CASE
Michigan prisoner Eric James Brandel (“Plaintiff”) filed a pro se civil rights complaint
pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, but did not submit either the $350.00 filing fee and $52.00
administrative or an application to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee. The Court
issued a deficiency order on January 29, 2021 requiring Plaintiff to submit the required fees or
to submit an application to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee within 30 days of the
filing date of the order. The order provided that if he did not do so, his case would be
dismissed. Plaintiff has not corrected the deficiency. Accordingly, the Court DISMISSES
WITHOUT PREJUDICE this case for failure to comply with the federal rules and the Court’s
order. Should Plaintiff wish to pursue his claims, he must file a new civil rights action that
complies with the applicable filing requirements. This case is closed and will not be reopened.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 1, 2021
