IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN THOMAS W. ZACH , Plaintiff, ORDER v. Case No. 17-cv-693-jdp SCOTT HETH, et al. Defendants. Plaintiff Thomas W. Zach has filed a proposed civil complaint. Plaintiff seeks to commence this lawsuit without prepayment of the filing fee pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. From the affidavit of indigency plaintiff has submitted, I find that plaintiff is unable to prepay the fees and costs of commencing this action or to give security therefor. ORDER IT IS ORDERED that: 1. Plaintiff Thomas W. Zach’s petition for leave to proceed without prepayment of fees is GRANTED. 2. No further action will be taken in this case until the court has screened the complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 to determine whether the case must be dismissed 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. Once the screening process is complete, a separate order will issue. Entered this 13th day of September, 2017. BY THE COURT: /s/ PETER OPPENEER Magistrate Judge
