Davis v. Stanton

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


December 17, 2007

EARL SIDNEY DAVIS, PLAINTIFF,
v.
DAVID STANTON, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

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

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff's "motion for reconsideration" (Doc. 6) of this Court's order granting Plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis. Even though Plaintiff is proceeding in forma pauperis, Plaintiff is still required to pay the full $350.00 filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1)*fn1 Plaintiff appears to be under the belief that he must pay the $350.00 all at once. However, the prior Order specifically allowed the filing fee to be paid in installments. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b). Because Plaintiff had been without funds for the six months prior to the filing of the complaint, the Court set the first installment amount at $0.00. Additional installment payments will be paid to the Court only when the amount in Plaintiff's account exceeds $10. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(2). Therefore, Plaintiff's "motion for reconsideration" (Doc. 6) is DENIED.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

J. Phil Gilbert U. S. District Judge
