UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
CARL LEE JONES,
Case No. 1:12-cv-719
Honorable Paul L. Maloney
JOHN PRELESNIK et al.,
This is a civil rights action brought by a state prisoner pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
By order entered July 30, 2012 (docket #7), the Court granted Plaintiff’s request to proceed in forma
pauperis and required Plaintiff to pay an initial partial filing fee of $0.78 pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 1915(b)(1). The Court ordered that the initial partial filing fee be paid within 28 days, and warned
Plaintiff that his case would be dismissed without prejudice should he fail to pay. The Court also
warned Plaintiff that he would remain liable for the filing fee.
Twenty-eight days have now elapsed, and Plaintiff has not paid the fee. Because
Plaintiff has failed to comply with the Court’s order, the Court will dismiss the action without
prejudice for lack of prosecution. Plaintiff shall remain liable for the $350.00 civil action filing fee.
September 18, 2012
