IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
GREG M. SENA,
No. 17-cv-0890 RJ/SMV
DREW D. TATUM, DONNA J. MOWRER,
and MARNA N. PYLE-TRAMMELL,
ORDER GRANTING LEAVE TO PROCEED PURSUANT TO 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)
AND TO MAKE PAYMENTS OR SHOW CAUSE
THIS MATTER is before the Court on the Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 filed by Plaintiff Greg M. Sena [Doc. 2]. Because the Court grants
the application, the filing fee for this civil rights complaint is $350.00. Pursuant to § 1915(b)(1),
Plaintiff is required to make installment payments until the full amount of the filing fee is paid.
Based on analysis under § 1915(b)(1) of Plaintiff’s inmate account statement, [Doc. 2] at 3–4,
the Court finds that Plaintiff owes an initial partial payment of $40.85. If Plaintiff fails to make a
payment by the designated deadline or show cause why such payment should be excused, the
civil rights complaint may be dismissed without further notice.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Motion and Affidavit for Leave to Proceed
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 filed by Plaintiff Greg M. Sena [Doc. 2] is GRANTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, within 30 days of entry of this Order, Plaintiff send
to the Clerk an initial partial payment of $40.85 or show cause why payment should be excused.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk is directed to provide Plaintiff with two
copies of this Order, and that Plaintiff make the necessary arrangements to attach one copy of
this Order to the check in the $40.85 amount of the initial partial payment.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, after payment of the $40.85 initial partial fee,
Plaintiff make monthly payments of 20% of the preceding month’s income credited to his
account or show cause why the designated payments should be excused.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
