United States District Court, S.D. Illinois
August 5, 2005.
DOUGLAS HILL, Inmate #K-64161, Plaintiff,
DONALD SNYDER, et al., Defendants.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: MICHAEL J. REAGAN, District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
The Court closed this case for Plaintiff's failure to pay his
initial partial filing fee or show cause why he was unable to do
so (see Doc. 6, 7). Now before the Court are Plaintiff's motion
to reverse judgment (Doc. 8) and his motion to reinstate the complaint (Doc.
10). In each of these motions, Plaintiff states that he did, in fact, pay
his initial partial filing fee in December 2004.
Upon receipt of Plaintiff's motion to reverse, the Clerk
checked the financial records and discovered that Plaintiff was
correct, although that information was not entered in the docket
at the time payment was received. That information was added to
the docket on May 16, 2005, and the Court apologizes to Plaintiff
for this administrative error.
The instant motions are GRANTED. The judgment entered in this
action (Doc. 7) is VACATED and HELD FOR NAUGHT. The Clerk
shall REOPEN THIS CASE.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
