U.S. v. BLACK

May 13, 2004.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff,
v.
MICHAEL BLACK, Defendant



The opinion of the court was delivered by: MILTON SHADUR, Senior District Judge

MEMORANDUM ORDER

On March 10, 2004 this Court entered its order requiring Michael Black ("Black") to submit a printout reflecting transactions in his trust fund account at Butner FMC ("Butner," where he is now in custody) for the entire period from September 1, 2003 to March 1, 2004, to enable this Court to rule on his motion for leave to appeal in forma pauperis (see 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2)*fn1). That printout has now been provided, and this Court's calculations reflect the following:
1. Average monthly deposits to Black's account for that six month period (Section 1915(b)(1)(A)) are far in excess of the average monthly balance in the account (Section 1915(b)(1)(B)) during the same period.
2. Those average monthly deposits amounted to $104.17, 20% of which is $20.83 (Section 1915(b)(I)).

If the current balance in the account is insufficient for such a payment, payment shall be made as soon as the amount in the account is adequate to meet that requirement.

  After such payment, the trust fund officer at Butner (or at any other correctional facility where Black may hereafter be confined) is authorized to collect monthly payments from his trust fund account in an amount equal to 20% of the preceding month's income credited to the account. Monthly payments collected from the trust fund account shall be forwarded to the Clerk each time the amount in the account exceeds $10 until the full $255 in filing fees is paid. Both the initial payment and all future payments shall be sent to the Clerk, United States District Court, 219 South Dearborn Street, Chicago, Illinois 60604, attention: Fiscal Department, and shall clearly identify Black's name and the 04-1350 case number assigned to the present appeal and ...
