ORD ER Plaintiff Steven Fortney, a prisoner at the Green Bay Correctional Institution in Green Bay, Wisconsin, has submitted a proposed complaint. He requests leave to proceed in forma pauperis and has paid an initial partial filing fee.

Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that plaintiff Steven Fortney's complaint is taken under advisement. As soon as the court's calendar permits, plaintiff's complaint will be screened pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915(e)(2) to determine whether the case must be dismissed either because the complaint is frivolous or malicious, fails to state a claim on which relief may be granted or seeks monetary relief against a defendant who is immune from such relief. Plaintiff will be notified promptly when such a decision has been made. Entered this 9th day of September, 2009. BY THE COURT: /s/ STEPHEN L. CROCKER Magistrate Judge 2
