Childs, Shareef v. Webster et al
ORDER on ifp request: Initial partial filing fee of $ 51.91 assessed. Initial partial filing fee due 5/31/2022. Signed by Magistrate Judge Stephen L. Crocker on 5/9/2022. (lam),(ps)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
MS. WEBSTER, et al,
Case No. 22-cv-256-jdp
Plaintiff Shareef Childs has submitted a certified inmate trust fund account
statement for the six month period preceding the complaint in support of the pending
motion to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee. Accordingly, the court must
determine whether plaintiff qualifies for indigent status and, if so, calculate an initial
partial payment of the $350.00 fee for filing this case.
Even when an inmate litigant qualifies for indigent status, the litigant must pay a
portion of the fee returned by the formula set forth in 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1). Using
information for the relevant time period from plaintiff’s trust fund account statement, I
calculate plaintiff’s initial partial filing fee to be $51.91. For this case to proceed, plaintiff
must submit this amount on or before May 31, 2022.
If plaintiff does not have enough money to make the initial partial payment from
plaintiff’s regular account, plaintiff should arrange with prison authorities to pay the
remainder from plaintiff’s release account.
IT IS ORDERED that,
Plaintiff Shareef Childs is assessed $51.91 as an initial partial payment of
the $350.00 fee for filing this case. Plaintiff is to submit a check or money order made
payable to the clerk of court in the amount of $51.91 or advise the court in writing why
plaintiff is not able to submit the assessed amount on or before May 31, 2022.
If, by May 31, 2022, plaintiff fails to make the initial partial payment or
show cause for failure to do so, plaintiff will be held to have withdrawn this action
voluntarily and the case will be closed without prejudice to plaintiff filing this case at a
No further action will be taken in this case until the clerk’s office receives
plaintiff’s initial partial filing fee as directed above and the court has screened the
complaint as required by the Prison Litigation Reform Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1915A. Once the
screening process is complete, a separate order will issue.
Entered this 9th day of May, 2022.
