Veysey, John v. Werlinger, Robert
ORDER directing petitioner to pay the $ 5.00 filing fee by June 3, 2013. Signed by Magistrate Judge Peter A. Oppeneer on 5/13/2013. (elc),(ps)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
JOHN T. VEYSEY III,
WARDEN ROBERT WERLINGER
Petitioner John Veysey, a prisoner at the Federal Correctional Institution in Oxford,
Wisconsin, has filed an application for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241.
He requests leave to proceed in forma pauperis. Petitioner has supported his request with an
affidavit of indigency and a trust account statement from the institution.
In determining whether to allow a prisoner to proceed in forma pauperis, this court uses
the following formula. First, the court determines petitioner's average monthly deposits and his
average monthly balances for the six-month period mentioned above. If 20% of the greater of
these two figures is $5 or more, the petitioner is not eligible for indigent status and will have to
prepay all of the $5 filing fee. If 20% of the greater of these two figures is less than $5, he will
be required to prepay whatever portion less than $5 has been calculated.
Applying this formula to petitioner, I find that he is able to pay the filing fee. According
to the trust account statement, petitioner’s average monthly balance is $74.64. Twenty percent
of this figure is $14.92. Accordingly, I will deny petitioner’s application for leave to proceed in
forma pauperis. To proceed further on his habeas petition, petitioner must pay the $5 filing fee.
If he fails to pay the fee by June 3, 2013, his petition will be dismissed for his failure to
IT IS ORDERED that the petition of John Veysey for leave to proceed in forma pauperis
is DENIED. Petitioner has until June 3, 2013 in which to pay the $5 filing fee. If he fails to
submit the fee by June 3, 2013, his petition will be dismissed for failure to prosecute it.
