IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
REECE R. STACK,
CORRECTIONS, et al.
CASE NO. 4:11CV3197
This matter is before the court on Plaintiff’s Motion for Extension of Time and Motion
for Copies. (Filing No. 37.) Plaintiff does not have the right to receive copies of documents
without payment, even if the court granted him leave to proceed in forma pauperis. 28
U.S.C. § 1915; see also 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 Plaintiff requires copies
of court documents, he should contact the Clerk of the court to determine the proper
method of requesting and paying for copies. Accordingly,
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion for Extension of Time and
Motion for Copies (Filing No. 37) is granted in part. Plaintiff shall have until April 30, 2012,
to file an amended complaint in accordance with the court’s March 15, 2012, Memorandum
DATED this 3rd day of April, 2012.
