IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA COLUMBIA DIVISION John S. Stritzinger, ) ) Plaintiff, ) ) v. ) ) Bank of America; Vernon MC Wright; Charles ) Holliday; Brian Moynihan; United States of ) America; Walter Massey, ) ) Defendants. ) _____________________________________ ) C/A No. 3:15-1469-TLW-PJG ORDER This is a civil action filed by a pro se litigant. Under Local Civil Rule 73.02(B)(2) (D.S.C.), pretrial proceedings in this action have been referred to the assigned United States Magistrate Judge. By orders issued on April 22, 2015 and May 20, 2015, the court allowed Plaintiff an opportunity to bring this case into proper form for initial review. (ECF Nos. 8 & 22.) Plaintiff has now complied with the court’s orders. PAYMENT OF THE FILING FEE: Plaintiff submitted an Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees and Affidavit (Form AO240), which the court construed as a motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915. (ECF No. 17-1.) A review of the motion reveals that Plaintiff should be relieved of the obligation to prepay the full filing fee. Therefore, Plaintiff’s motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted (ECF No. 17), subject to the court’s right to require a payment if Plaintiff’s financial condition changes, and to tax fees and costs against Plaintiff at the conclusion of this case if the court finds the case to be without merit. See Flint v. Haynes, 651 F.2d 970, 972-74 (4th Cir. 1981). CLERK OF COURT: The Clerk of Court is directed not to issue the summonses for service of process at this time. IT IS SO ORDERED.
