Reeves v. State

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


August 23, 2006

MICHAEL REEVES, PLAINTIFF,
v.
STATE OF ILLINOIS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Stiehl, District Judge

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

This action was originally filed in the Circuit Court for the First Judicial District in Massac County, Illinois. After entering their appearances, Defendants filed a notice of removal to this District and paid the full filing fee. Now before the Court is Plaintiff's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. 17). Presumably this motion was prompted by the Court's denial of his motion for appointment of counsel, when the Court stated that "he has not yet sought or been granted leave to proceed in forma pauperis in this action." See Doc. 10.

The Court finds that Plaintiff is, in fact, indigent. Accordingly, the instant motion is GRANTED. Because Defendants already paid the filing fee, the Court need not assess and collect the filing fee from Plaintiff. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

WILLIAM D. STIEHL DISTRICT JUDGE
