IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
HERBERT LEE CAMPBELL,
SUZANNE M. KIRKLAND, et al.,
CASE NO. 4:12CV3016
This matter is before the court on its own motion. On January 31, 2012, Plaintiff
filed his Complaint in this matter (Filing No. 1), along with a Motion for Leave to Proceed
in Forma Pauperis (“IFP”) (Filing No. 2). On February 28, 2012, the court granted Plaintiff’s
IFP Motion and assessed an initial partial filing fee pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1).
(Filing No. 6.) In doing so, the court warned Plaintiff that his case would be subject to
dismissal if he failed to pay the initial partial filing fee by March 29, 2012. (Id.) Plaintiff
thereafter sought two lengthy extensions of time in which to pay the initial partial filing fee.
(Filing Nos. 7 and 10.) The court granted both extensions, giving Plaintiff a final deadline
of July 23, 2012, in which to pay the initial partial filing fee. (Filing No. 11, text-only order.)
In granting Plaintiff’s second request for an extension of time, the court stated that “no
further extensions of time will be permitted and this matter will be dismissed without further
notice if payment is not received by July 23, 2012.” (Id.)
The July 23, 2012, deadline has passed and Plaintiff has not paid the initial partial
filing fee in this matter. (See Docket Sheet.) Therefore, Plaintiff’s case is dismissed for
failing to comply with the court’s February 28, 2012, Memorandum and Order and the
court’s subsequent text-only orders. See Fed. R. Civ. Pro. 41(b); see also Conley v.
Holden, No. 03-3908, 2004 WL 2202452, at *1 (8th Cir. Sept. 21, 2004), (affirming district
court’s dismissal of inmate’s case for failing to pay the assessed initial partial filing fee).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that:
Plaintiff’s Complaint (Filing No. 1) is dismissed without prejudice because
Plaintiff failed to comply with this court’s orders;
A separate judgment will be entered in accordance with this Memorandum
and Order; and
All pending motions are denied as moot.
DATED this 14th day of August, 2012.
BY THE COURT:

Chief United States District Judge
