UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
EDWARD J. YOUNGLOOD,
Case No. 17-cv-564-pp
MILWAUKEE COUNTY JAIL, et al.,
ORDER DISMISSING CASE FOR FAILURE TO PAY THE INITIAL PARTIAL
On May 18, 2017, the court ordered the plaintiff to pay an initial partial
filing fee of $31.30 by the end of the day on June 9, 2017. Dkt. No. 5. The
court did not receive the fee by that deadline. On June 22, 2017, the court
issued an order to show cause, requiring the plaintiff to pay the fee by August
4, 2017 or show cause why he could not do so. Dkt. No. 6. In that order, the
court told the plaintiff that if he did not pay the fee or explain why he’d not
done so by the end of the day on August 4, 2017, the court would dismiss the
case for failure to prosecute.
As of today’s date—August 11, 2017—the court has not received either
the filing fee or the plaintiff’s explanation of why he has not paid it.
The court ORDERS that this case is DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE
for failure to prosecute—specifically, for failure to pay the initial partial filing
fee required by the Prison Litigation Reform Act.
Dated in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this 11th day of August, 2017.
BY THE COURT:
HON. PAMELA PEPPER
