UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
JASON DARNELL CHRISTON,
Case No. 17-cv-1191-pp
RACINE COUNTY JAIL,
ORDER DISMISSING CASE
On September 1, 2017, plaintiff Jason Darnell Christon filed a pro se
complaint under 42 U.S.C. §1983, along with a motion for leave to proceed
without prepayment of the filing fee. Dkt. Nos. 1, 2. He did not file a certified
copy of his prisoner trust account statement for the six-month period prior to
the date he filed his complaint.
On September 1, 2017, the clerk’s office sent the plaintiff a letter, asking
him to file his trust account statement within twenty-one days. Dkt. No. 3. The
plaintiff failed to submit his trust account statement within that time period,
and Judge Nancy Joseph entered an order on October 4, 2017 that directed the
plaintiff either to pay the $400.00 filing fee for this case or submit a certified
copy of his prison trust account statement by October 27, 2017. Dkt. No. 5.
That order warned the plaintiff that failure to do one or the other of those
things could result in the dismissal of this case for failure to prosecute. Id.
To date, the court has not received the filing fee for this case or the
plaintiff’s prison trust account statement, which the court needs to determine
whether the plaintiff may proceed without prepayment of the filing fee.
The court DISMISSES this case without prejudice for failure to
prosecute. The clerk of court will enter judgment accordingly.
Dated in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this 7th day of November, 2017.
BY THE COURT:
HON. PAMELA PEPPER
United States District Judge
