has failed to supply the consent and authorization forms required by the institution having custody of
the applicant, allowing collection of fees from the inmate trust fund account or institutional equivalent.
9 The applicant is barred from proceeding in forma pauperis on appeal because of the Athree
strikes@ rule of 28 U.S.C. ' 1915(g).
: Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ' 1915 (a) (3) and Fed. R. App. P. 24(a)(3), the court certifies that
the appeal is not taken in good faith.
There is no final judgment from which to take an appeal.
IF PERMISSION TO APPEAL IN FORMA PAUPERIS IS DENIED BECAUSE THE COURT
CERTIFIES THE APPEAL IS NOT TAKEN IN GOOD FAITH, COMPLETE THE SECTION
: Although this court has certified that the appeal is not taken in good faith under 28 U.S.C. '
1915(a)(3) and Fed. R. App. P. 24(a)(3), the applicant may challenge this finding pursuant to Baugh v.
Taylor, 117 F. 3d 197 (5th Cir. 1997), by filing a separate motion to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal
with the Clerk of Court, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, within 30 days of this order. The
cost to file a motion to proceed on appeal with the Fifth Circuit is calculated below, and if the appellant
moves to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis, the prison authorities will be directed to collect the fees
as calculated in this order.
: The plaintiff will not be assessed an initial partial fee, as such funds do not exist.
: Thereafter, the plaintiff shall pay $505.00, the balance of the filing fees, in periodic
installments. The appellant is required to make payments of 20% of the preceding month=s income
credited to the appellant=s prison account until appellant has paid the total filing fees of $505.00. The
agency having custody of the prisoner shall collect this amount from the trust fund account or
institutional equivalent, when funds are available and when permitted by 28 U.S.C. ' 1915(b)(2), and
forward it to the clerk of the district court.
If the appellant moves to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis, the clerk shall mail a copy of
this order to the inmate accounting office or other person(s) or entity with responsibility for collection
and remitting to the district court interim filing payments on behalf of prisoners, as designated by the
facility in which the prisoner is currently or subsequently confined.
SO ORDERED, this, the 4th day of August, 2017.
