ORDER on ifp request: Trust Fund Account Statement due 12/27/2017. Signed by Magistrate Judge Peter A. Oppeneer on 12/4/2017. (jef),(ps)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
MARCUS O. SINGLETON,
Case No. 17-cv-898-wmc
Petitioner Marcus O. Singleton seeks a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §
2254. Petitioner has submitted a motion for leave to proceed without prepayment of the
filing fee. (Dkt. # 3).
The court cannot consider this motion, however, because it lacks
supporting documentation regarding petitioner’s eligibility for indigent status. For this case
to move forward, petitioner must either pay the $5 filing fee or submit a certified inmate
trust fund account statement (or institutional equivalent) for the six-month period
immediately preceding the filing of this habeas corpus petition. If petitioner does not submit
either the $5 filing fee or a trust fund account statement before December 27, 2017, the
court will assume that petitioner wishes to withdraw this action voluntarily and will dismiss
IT IS ORDERED that:
The motion for leave to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee (Dkt.
# 3) is DENIED at this time.
No later than December 27, 2017, petitioner Marcus O. Singleton shall pay
the $5 filing fee or submit a certified copy of petitioner’s inmate trust fund account
statement for the six-month period from the date of the habeas petition (May 27, 2017
through at least November 27, 2017).
If petitioner fails to pay the $5 filing fee, comply as directed, or show cause for
failure to do so, the court will assume the petitioner wishes to withdraw this petition.
Entered this 4th day of December, 2017.
