Plaintiff’s declaration indicates he is unable to afford the court’s filing fee or give
security therefore. Accordingly, plaintiff’s application to proceed as a pauper is GRANTED.

make monthly payments of 20 percent of the preceding month’s income credited to his/her
account until the full amount of the filing fee is satisfied.
ORDER GRANTING APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN
FORMA PAUPERIS AND DIRECTING INSTITUTION
TO CALCULATE, COLLECT, AND FORWARD
PAYMENTS - 1
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 and plaintiff’s approved application to proceed in
forma pauperis, the agency having custody of the above named plaintiff is directed to calculate
an initial partial filing fee equal to 20 percent of the greater of -- the average monthly deposits to
the prisoner’s account or the average monthly balance in the prisoner’s account for the 6-month
period immediately preceding the date of this Order. The initial partial filing fee should be
forwarded to the court clerk as soon as practicable.
Subsequently, if the prisoner’s account exceeds $10.00, each month the agency is
directed to collect and forward payments equal to 20 percent of the prisoner’s preceding month’s
income credited to the prisoner’s account. In the event that the monthly payment would reduce
the prisoner’s account below $10.00, the agency should collect and forward only that amount
which would reduce the prisoner’s account to the $10.00 level. Please note that this $10.00 limit
does not apply to the initial partial filing fee described above. Finally, the monthly payments
should be collected and forwarded to the court until the entire filing fee ($350.00) for this matter
has been paid.
The Clerk is directed to send copies of this Order and the Pro Se Instruction Sheet
to plaintiff, and a copy of this Order along with a copy of plaintiff’s Acknowledgment and
Authorization portion of the IFP application to the Prison Litigation Reform Act (“PLRA”)
contact person, the inmate account manager at the agency having custody of plaintiff.
Dated this 10th day of April, 2018.
