KEITH O. MBELU,
HONORABLE PAUL L. MALONEY
Case No. 1:17-cv-1093
CITY OF EAST LANSING, et al.,
ORDER DISMISSING CASE FOR FAILURE TO PAY FILING FEE
On December 19, 2017, an order issued denying the plaintiff's application for
leave to proceed in forma pauperis in this action (ECF No. 4). Plaintiff moved for
reconsideration of that denial, and the court denied plaintiff’s second application for
in forma pauperis status (ECF No. 8). The order further directed the plaintiff to pay
the $400.00 filing fee by February 21, 2018, or the action would be dismissed. To
date, the plaintiff has not paid the filing fee. Dismissal of the action is appropriate
as the plaintiff has failed to comply with a court order. Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b), see Link
v. Wabash R.R. CO., 370 U.S. 626,632-633 (1962).
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter is DISMISSED and
Date: March 5, 2018
