Collins v. Bear
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION 7 ; Denies Collins' Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees 2 and RE-REFERS CASE to Magistrate Judge Charles B Goodwin for further proceedings. Signed by Honorable Lee R. West on 8/11/2017. (kb)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR
THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF OKLAHOMA
WARDEN CARL BEAR,
On July 27, 2017, United States Magistrate Judge Charles B. Goodwin issued a
Report and Recommendation in this matter and recommended that the Court deny the
Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees filed by petitioner Latoris Collins, a
state prisoner appearing pro se. Magistrate Judge Goodwin further recommended that
the Court order Collins to pay the filing fee of $5.00 in full or to show good cause for his
failure to do so. Although Magistrate Judge Goodwin advised Collins of his right to object
to the Report and Recommendation, s^ Doc. 7 at 2, Collins has instead, as the record
reflects, paid the filing fee. See Doc. 8.
Upon review, the Court concurs with Magistrate Judge Goodwin's findings that
Collins has sufficient funds in his institutional savings account to prepay the filing fee, see
Doc. 2-1, and that he is therefore not entitled to litigate this matter without prepayment of
the filing fee in full.
Accordingly, the Court
(1) ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation [Doc. 7] filed on July 27, 2017;
(2) DENIES Collins' Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees [Doc. 2]
file-stamped July 14, 2017; and
(3) RE-REFERS this matter to Magistrate Judge Goodwin for further proceedings.
ENTERED this //"*** day of August. 2017.
