IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN LAWRENCE V. PINKERTON, ORDER Plaintiff, 12-cv-481-slc v. DEPUTY B. CRAIG, Defendant. Plaintiff Lawrence Pinkerton, an inmate at the Dane County Jail in Madison, Wisconsin, has submitted a proposed complaint. He requests leave to proceed in forma pauperis. Because plaintiff is detained, he is subject to the 1996 Prisoner Litigation Reform Act. This means that before this court may decide whether he can proceed with his complaint in forma pauperis, plaintiff will have to make an initial partial payment of the filing fee. From the trust fund account statement plaintiff has submitted, I calculate his initial partial payment to be $7.69. Also, he must pay the remainder of the fee in monthly installments even if his request for leave to proceed is denied. Plaintiff should show a copy of this order to jail officials to insure that they are aware they should send plaintiff’s initial partial payment to this court. ORDER IT IS ORDERED that plaintiff Lawrence Pinkerton is assessed $7.69 as an initial partial payment of the $350 fee for filing this case. He is to submit a check or money order made payable to the clerk of court in the amount of $7.69 on or before July 30, 2012. If, by July 30, 2012, plaintiff fails to make the initial partial payment or show cause for his failure to do so, he will be held to have withdrawn this action voluntarily. In that event, the clerk of court is directed to close this file without prejudice to plaintiff's filing his case at a later date. Entered this 6th day of July, 2012. BY THE COURT: /s/ STEPHEN L. CROCKER Magistrate Judge 2
