Mack, Keith v. The American National Bank of Beaver Dam et al Doc. 3 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT F O R THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN K E IT H MARTIN MACK, ORDER Plaintiff, v. T H E AMERICAN NATIONAL BANK OF BEAVER DAM, EDWARD C. JACOBS, AMBANC FINANCIAL SERVICES, CEO,and DOES 1-10, D e fe n d a n t s . _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 1 0 -c v -5 5 7 -s lc This is a proposed civil action transferred from the United States District Court, Central District of California, in which plaintiff Keith Martin Mack is seeking monetary damages and injunctive relief. Plaintiff has asked for leave to proceed in forma pauperis and has supported his request with an affidavit of indigency. The standard for determining whether plaintiff qualifies for indigent status is the following: ! From plaintiff's annual gross income, the court subtracts $3700 for each dependent excluding the plaintiff. ! If the balance is less than $16,000, the plaintiff may proceed without any prepayment of fees and costs. ! If the balance is greater than $16,000 but less than $32,000, the plaintiff must prepay half the fees and costs. ! ! If the balance is greater than $32,000, the plaintiff must prepay all fees and costs. Substantial assets or debts require individual consideration. In this case, plaintiff is unemployed and last filed a tax return for 2005. He indicates that the annual income on his 2005 tax return was $10,000. Because plaintiff's income is less than $16,000, he can proceed without any prepayment of fees or costs. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that plaintiff'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 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. In the meantime, if plaintiff needs to communicate with the court about this case, he should be sure to write the case number shown above on his communication. Entered this 14th day of October, 2010. BY THE COURT: /s/ STEPHEN L. CROCKER Magistrate Judge
