IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the agency having custody of Plaintiff shall remit the appellate fee of $455.00 from Plaintiff's prison trust account, if available. If $455.00 is not available from Plaintiff's prison trust account, IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff shall pay the $455.00 filing fee applicable to this appeal as follows:
1. Plaintiff shall pay an initial partial filing fee of $61.07 . See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1). The agency having custody of Plaintiff is DIRECTED to transmit this amount from Plaintiff's prison trust account to the Clerk of Court upon receipt of this Order.

3. The agency having custody of Plaintiff shall forward payments from Plaintiff's account to the Clerk of this Court each time the amount in the account exceeds $10 until the filing fees are paid. Payments shall be mailed to: Clerk of the Court, United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois, P.O. Box 249, East St. Louis, Illinois 62202.
