Ryan, John v. Hanneman, Matthew
ORDER granting plaintiff's 2 motion to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee. Complaint taken under advisement for screening. Signed by Magistrate Judge Peter A. Oppeneer on 10/29/2015. (jef),(ps)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
JOHN RICHARD RYAN, JR.,
Case No. 15-cv-696-wmc
MATTHEW K. HANNEMAN,
Plaintiff John Richard Ryan, Jr. an inmate in the custody of the Dane County Jail, has
submitted an inmate account statement for the six month period preceding his complaint in
support of his pending motion to proceed without prepaying the filing fee. Using
information for the relevant time period from plaintiff’s trust fund account statement, it
appears that plaintiff presently has no means with which to pay the filing fee for his
complaint or to make an initial partial payment. Under these circumstances, the court will
grant plaintiff’s motion for leave to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee, but will not
assess an initial partial filing fee. Plaintiff is advised, however, that he will remain obligated
to pay the full amount of the $350 filing fee for indigent litigants, even if this court
ultimately determines that his complaint cannot go forward. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915A.
Because plaintiff is a prisoner, plaintiff is subject to the Prison Litigation Reform Act,
which requires the court to screen the complaint to determine whether any portion is
frivolous or malicious, fails to state a claim on which relief may be granted or seeks monetary
relief from a defendant who is immune from such relief.
IT IS ORDERED that:
The motion filed by plaintiff John Richard Ryan, Jr. for leave to proceed
without prepayment of the filing fee is GRANTED.
No further action will be taken in this case until the court has screened the
complaint as required by 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2). Once the screening process is complete, a
separate order will issue.
Entered this 29th day of October, 2015.
