IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
FRED BRITTEN, Warden, and
ROBERT HOUSTON, Director of the
Department of Corrections,
CASE NO. 4:11CV3084
This matter is before the court on Petitioner’s Motion for Leave to Proceed In Forma
Pauperis (“IFP”). (Filing No. 2.) Habeas corpus cases attacking the legality of a person’s
confinement require the payment of a $5.00 fee. 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a). The court has
reviewed the application to proceed IFP pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1)-(2).
Petitioner’s trust account information shows that Petitioner’s account contained an average
monthly balance of $100 or more for the six-month period immediately preceding the filing
of the petition. (Filing No. 3.) Thus, the court concludes that Petitioner must be required
to pay the $5.00 filing fee because Petitioner has the financial ability to do so. See 28
U.S.C. § 1915(a). No further review of this case will take place until the fee is paid.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that:
Petitioner’s application to proceed IFP (Filing No. 2) is denied;
Petitioner is granted until July 25, 2011 to pay the $5.00 filing fee. Petitioner
is warned that if the fee is not paid as required, the court may dismiss this
case without further notice;
The Clerk of the court is directed to set a pro se case management deadline
in this case using the following text: July 25, 2011: deadline for Petitioner to
pay $5.00 filing fee; and
No further review of this case will take place until the filing fee is paid.
DATED this 24th day of June, 2011.
