Ajala, Mustafa-El v. Swiekatowski, William et al

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
MUSTAFA-EL K.A. AJALA,
formerly known as Dennis E. Jones-El,
GARY BOUGHTON, PATRICK BRANDT,
MICHAEL DELVAUX and WILLIAM POLLARD,
In an order entered on September 16, 2013, this case was severed from case 13-cv-102bbc. Plaintiff Mustafa-El Ajala was advised that he must pay an initial partial payment of the
$350.00 filing fee in the amount of $19.20 if he intended to proceed in this case. To date,
plaintiff has not paid the $19.20 initial partial payment. On November 20, 2013, plaintiff
submitted a motion requesting that the court apply the installment payments made in his other
cases in this court to the initial partial payment in this case. Plaintiff’s motion will be granted.
In his motion, plaintiff says that the court would receive a $19.75 check for the
installments in his other cases. Instead of a $19.75 check that plaintiff said was forthcoming,
the clerk’s office has received a check in the amount of $11.16. That amount will be applied
toward plaintiff’s $19.20 initial partial payment in this case. Now plaintiff owes $8.04 of the
$19.20 initial partial filing fee.
If plaintiff does not have the money to make the remainder of his initial partial payment
in his regular account, he will have to arrange with prison authorities to pay some or all of the
assessment from his release account. This does not mean that plaintiff is free to ask prison
authorities to pay all of his filing fee from his release account. The only amount plaintiff must
pay at this time is the $8.04 remainder of the initial partial payment. Before prison officials take
any portion of that amount from plaintiff’s release account, they may first take from plaintiff’s
regular account whatever amount up to the full amount plaintiff owes. Plaintiff should show a
copy of this order to prison officials to insure that they are aware they should send plaintiff’s
initial partial payment to this court.
IT IS ORDERED that plaintiff Mustafa-El Ajala’s motion to apply his recent installment
payments to this case, dkt. #8, is GRANTED. Plaintiff may have until December 27, 2013, in
which submit $8.04 as the remainder of his initial partial payment of the $350.00 fee for filing
this case. If, by December 27, 2013, plaintiff fails to make the necessary $8.04 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show cause for his failure to do so, he will be held to have withdrawn this action voluntarily.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 9th day of December 2013.
