ORDER denying 10 Motion to Refund Filing FeeRefund Filing Fee; denying 11 Motion to Refund Filing FeeRefund Filing Fee. Signed by Chief Judge Frank D. Whitney on 7/21/14. (Pro se litigant served by US Mail.)(mga)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
CLIFFORD NATHANIEL WARREN,
JIM SCHICK, Superintendent,
Haywood Detention Center,
THIS MATTER is before the Court on the pro se Plaintiff’s two Motions to Refund
Filing Fee. (Doc. No. 10; 11).
The Court dismissed without prejudice Plaintiff’s underlying action on April 11, 2014.
Plaintiff now seeks a refund of the amount of money deducted from his prison trust account
statement to pay his filing fee. The Court notes that Plaintiff was incarcerated at Mountain View
Correctional Institution when he filed this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action, but he has since been
released from custody. See (Doc. No 13). Plaintiff’s motions are denied because, during the
period of his incarceration, Plaintiff was still required to pay the full filing fee even though this
action has been dismissed. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1) (stating that “if a prisoner brings a civil
action or files an appeal in forma pauperis, the prisoner shall be required to pay the full amount
of a filing fee”).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that:
Plaintiff’s Motions to Refund Filing Fee, (Doc. Nos. 10; 12), are DENIED.
Signed: July 21, 2014
