Holladay v. Bakewell
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER - Petitioner's Motion to Reconsider (filing no. 18 ), is denied. Ordered by Senior Judge Richard G. Kopf. (Copy mailed/e-mailed to pro se party)(GJG)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
DENNIS BAKEWELL, Warden,
This matter is before the court on Petitioner’s Motion to Reconsider. (Filing No. 18.) In his Motion,
Plaintiff seeks reconsideration of the court’s December 5, 2011, Memorandum and Order, which denied
Petitioner’s Motion for Copies. (Id.) In that Memorandum and Order, the court informed Petitioner that he does
not have the right to receive copies of documents without payment, even if the court granted him leave to proceed
in forma pauperis. (Filing No. 17.) See also 28 U.S.C. § 1915; Haymes v. Smith, 73 F.R.D. 572, 574 (W.D.N.Y.
1976) (“The generally recognized rule is that a court may not authorize the commitment of federal funds to
underwrite the necessary expenditures of an indigent civil litigant’s action.”) (citing Tyler v. Lark, 472 F.2d 1077
(8th Cir. 1973), other citations omitted).
If Petitioner requires copies of court documents, he should contact the Clerk of the court to determine
the proper method of requesting and paying for copies. Petitioner’s Motion to Reconsider is denied.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Petitioner’s Motion to Reconsider (filing no. 18), is denied.
DATED this 22nd day of December, 2011.
BY THE COURT:
Richard G. Kopf
Senior United States District Judge
