IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN THOMAS J. KURUC, Plaintiff, ORDER v. Case No. 17-cv-946-jdp JOHN LITSCHER, et al., Defendants. Plaintiff Thomas J. Kuruc 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 January 11, 2018. 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 Thomas J. Kuruc may have until January 11, 2018 to submit a trust fund account statement for the period beginning approximately June 16, 2017 and ending approximately December 16, 2017. If, by January 11, 2018, 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 20th day of December, 2017. BY THE COURT: /s/ PETER OPPENEER Magistrate Judge
