This is a civil action filed by pro se litigants. Under Local Civil Rule 73.02(B)(2) of the
United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, pretrial proceedings in this action
have been referred to the assigned United States Magistrate Judge. By Order dated April 8, 2013,
Plaintiff was given a specific time frame in which to bring this case into proper form. Plaintiffs have
complied with the court’s Order, and this case is now in proper form.
PAYMENT OF THE FILING FEE:
Plaintiffs each submitted an Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees and
Affidavit (Form AO 240), which are construed as Motions for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis.
See 28 U.S.C. § 1915. ECF Nos. 2, 18. A review of the Motions reveals that Plaintiffs should be
relieved of the obligation to prepay the full filing fee. Plaintiffs’ Motions for Leave to Proceed in
forma pauperis are granted, subject to the court’s right to require a payment if Plaintiff’s financial
condition changes. See Flint v. Haynes, 651 F.2d 970, 972-74 (4th Cir. 1981).

United States Marshal for service of process at this time.

use letter-sized (8½ inches by 11 inches) paper only, to write or type text on one side of a sheet of
paper only and not to write or type on both sides of any sheet of paper. Plaintiffs are further
instructed not to write to the edge of the paper, but to maintain one inch margins on the top, bottom,
and sides of each paper submitted.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ....PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
WARNING TO PRO SE PARTY OR NONPARTY FILERS
All Documents That You File with the Court Will Be Available to the Public on the Internet
Through Pacer (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) and the court’s Electronic Case Filing
System. CERTAIN PERSONAL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION SHOULD NOT BE
INCLUDED IN OR SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM ALL DOCUMENTS BEFORE YOU
SUBMIT THE DOCUMENTS TO THE COURT FOR FILING.
Rule 5.2 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure provides for privacy protection of electronic
or paper filings made with the court. Rule 5.2 applies to ALL documents submitted for filing,
including pleadings, exhibits to pleadings, discovery responses, and any other document submitted
by any party or nonparty for filing. Unless otherwise ordered by the court, a party or nonparty filer
should not put certain types of an individual’s personal identifying information in documents
submitted for filing to any United States District Court. If it is necessary to file a document that
already contains personal identifying information, the personal identifying information should be
“blacked out” or redacted prior to submitting the document to the Clerk of Court for filing. A
person filing any document containing their own personal identifying information waives the
protection of Rule 5.2(a) by filing the information without redaction and not under seal.
1. Personal information protected by Rule 5.2(a):
(a) Social Security and Taxpayer identification numbers. If an individual’s social security
number or a taxpayer identification number must be included in a document, the filer may include
only the last four digits of that number.
(b) Names of Minor Children. If the involvement of a minor child must be mentioned, the filer
may include only the initials of that child.
(c) Dates of Birth. If an individual’s date of birth must be included in a document, the filer may
include only the year of birth.
(d) Financial Account Numbers. If financial account numbers are relevant, the filer may include
only the last four digits of these numbers.
2. Protection of other sensitive personal information – such as driver’s license numbers and alien
registration numbers – may be sought under Rule 5.2(d)(Filings Made Under Seal) and (e)
