Civil Action No. 3:17CV621-HEH
(Dismissing Action Without Prejudice)
On September 27, 2017, the Court conditionally docketed Plaintifr s action.
Plaintiff requested leave to proceed informa pauperis. By Memorandum Order entered
on November 15, 2017, the Court directed Plaintiff to pay an initial partial filing fee of
$12.25 or state under penalty of perjury that he did not have sufficient assets to pay such
a fee within eleven (11) days of the date of entry thereof. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(l).
Plaintiff has neither paid the initial partial filing fee nor averred that he cannot pay such a
fee. Instead, Plaintiff submitted a letter wherein he acknowledges that he has $28.00 in
his prison account, but he declined to pay the initial partial filing fee. Therefore, Plaintiff
is not entitled to proceed informa pauperis. Plaintiffs disregard of the Court's directives
warrants dismissal of the action. Accordingly, the action will be dismissed without
prejudice. Plaintiff's Motion to Continue (ECF No. 8) will be denied.
An appropriate Order shall accompany this Memorandum Opinion.
