IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
June 6, 2007
JOHNNY M. RUFFIN, JR., PLAINTIFF,
GUY PIERCE, AND KAREN MCKINNEY, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge
The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed the appeal from this action because plaintiff failed to tender his appellate filing fee of $455 or, in the alternative, to seek leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal. In the mandate (Doc. 272), the Seventh Circuit directed the clerk of this court to collect that appellate filing fee from plaintiff's trust fund account "using the mechanism of Section 1915(b)." This requires a copy of plaintiff's prison trust fund account statement.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff shall submit, within THIRTY (30) DAYS of the date of the entry of this order, a certified copy of his prison trust fund account statement for the six-monthperiod immediately preceding the filing of the notice of appeal. Plaintiff is ADVISED that in the event he has been transferred among institutions during this six-month period, it is plaintiff's responsibility to obtain a copy of his prison trust account statement from each such facility and to forward it to the Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CLIFFORD J. PROUD UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
