IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN MICHAEL JONES, Plaintiff, ORDER v. Case No. 17-cv-907-jdp DR. SYED, et al. Defendants. Plaintiff Michael Jones has filed a proposed civil complaint and requested leave to proceed without prepaying the filing fee. To evaluate plaintiff’s request to proceed with prepayment of the filing fee, I must review a certified copy of plaintiff’s inmate trust fund account statement (or institutional equivalent) for the six-month period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2). For this case to proceed, plaintiff must submit the certified trust fund account statement no later than December 27, 2017. If I find that plaintiff is indigent, I will calculate an initial partial payment amount that must be paid before the court can screen the merits of the complaint under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2). Thereafter, plaintiff will be required to pay the balance of the filing fee in installments. ORDER IT IS ORDERED that plaintiff Michael Jones may have until December 27, 2017 to submit a trust fund account statement for the period beginning approximately May 27, 2017 and ending approximately November 29, 2017. If, by December 27, 2017, plaintiff fails to respond to this order, I will assume that plaintiff wishes to withdraw this action voluntarily. In that event, the case will be closed without prejudice to plaintiff filing the case at a later date. Entered this 4th day of December, 2017. BY THE COURT: /s/ PETER OPPENEER Magistrate Judge
