IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI CENTRAL DIVISION
RAYMOND L. DOWNUM, Register No. 176023, Plaintiff, v. STEVE LONG, Chairman, et al., Defendants.
) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ORDER
On August 4, 2009, United States Magistrate Judge William A. Knox recommended dismissing plaintiff's claims. The parties were advised they could file written exceptions to the recommendation, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). The court has conducted a de novo review of the record, including the exceptions filed by plaintiff on August 28, 2009. The issues raised in plaintiff's exceptions were adequately addressed in the report and recommendation. The court is persuaded that the recommendation of the Magistrate Judge is correct and should be adopted. Inmates who file an appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit are required to pay the full $455.00 appellate filing fee, regardless of the outcome of the appeal. Henderson v. Norris, 129 F.3d 481, 484 (8th Cir. 1997). The filing of a notice of appeal is considered a consent by the inmate to allow prison officials to deduct an initial partial appellate filing fee and later installments from the prisoner's account. IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation of August 4, 2009, is adopted.  It is further ORDERED that defendants' motion to dismiss is granted and plaintiff's claims are dismissed on res judicata grounds and for failure to state a claim on which relief may be granted.  It is further
ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for an extension of time, treated as one for leave to file out-of-time, his exceptions is granted.
