Jones, Michael v. Syed et al
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
Case No. 17-cv-907-jdp
DR. SYED, et al.
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.
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
Entered this 4th day of December, 2017.
