RICHES v. BUSH et al Doc. 2 Case 2:06-cv-01055-LP Document 2 Filed 07/26/2006 Page 1 of 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA JONATHAN LEE RICHES : : v. : : GEORGE W. BUSH, Individually : and in his Official Capacity as : President of the United States : of America, et al. : ORDER AND NOW, this day of April, 2006, because the CIVIL ACTION NO. 06-1055 plaintiff, Jonathan Lee Riches, has failed to either pay the $250 filing fee to commence this civil action, or to file a motion to proceed in forma pauperis,1 the Clerk of Court is directed to CLOSE this case statistically.2 BY THE COURT: /S/ LOUIS H. POLLAK, J. 1. A grant of in forma pauperis status authorizes the deduction of filing fee payments from the plaintiff's prison account, as the funds become available, until the full filing fee is paid. In forma pauperis status does not relieve the plaintiff of the legal requirement that he pay the filing fee. 2. Because this complaint consists entirely of fanciful and clearly baseless claims, it would be subject to dismissal as factually frivolous pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915(e) if the plaintiff were to decide to pursue this civil action in this Court. See Denton v. Hernandez, 504 U.S. 25, 32-33 (1992). Despite such dismissal, the plaintiff would not be entitled to a refund of any portion of the aforementioned filing fee.
