MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court on plaintiff’s November
14, 2012, letter, which the Court construes as a motion to stop
payment of filing fee (Filing No. 29).

Court’s $350.00 filing fee by making monthly payments to the
Court, even if the prisoner is proceeding IFP.
28 U.S.C. §
“[T]he PLRA makes prisoners responsible for their
filing fees the moment the prisoner brings a civil action or
files an appeal.”

matter has been dismissed, plaintiff remains responsible for the
entire filing fee.
