Pabon Gonzalez, Helson v. Allen
ORDER on ifp request: Complaint taken under advisement for screening. Signed by Magistrate Judge Peter A. Oppeneer on 1/12/2018. (jef),(ps)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
HELSON PABON GONZALEZ,
Case No. 17-cv-850-jdp
HELSON PABON GONZALEZ,
Case No. 17-cv-851-jdp
HELSON PABON GONZALEZ, et al.
Case No. 17-cv-852-jdp
On November 14, 2017, plaintiff Helson Pabon Gonzalez, a prisoner in the custody
of the Wisconsin Department of Corrections, was assessed initial partial filing fees of $1.57
for each of the above cases (total $4.71). On December 11, 2017, plaintiff’s deadline was
extended to January 8, 2018 because he submitted a motion for extension of a legal loan in
which he said that he was unable to obtain the funds to purchase an envelope to send his
Plaintiff then sent another stating that he still had no means to send the
payments. The January 8 deadline has now passed and the court has not received his initial
partial payments. It appears that plaintiff presently has no means with which to send the
filing fees or to make his initial partial payments. Under these circumstances, the court will
grant plaintiff’s motion for leave to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee, but will not
require payment of the initial partial filing fees. Even if this court ultimately determines that
plaintiff’s complaints cannot go forward, plaintiff is advised that the full $350 filing fee for
indigent litigants remains plaintiff’s obligation. 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 each 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 motions filed by plaintiff Helson Pabon Gonzalez for leave to
proceed without prepayment of the filing fee are GRANTED.
No further action will be taken in these cases until the court has
screened each complaint as required by the Prisoner Litigation Reform Act, 28 U.S.C.
§ 1915(e)(2). Once the screening process is complete, a separate order will issue.
Entered this 12th day of January, 2018.
