IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
April 4, 2008
JAMES STATEN, PLAINTIFF,
SUSAN SHOBE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Murphy, District Judge
Plaintiff, a person confined at the Alton Mental Health Center, filed a complaint alleging violations of his constitutional rights pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff, however, never paid the full $350 filing fee nor submitted a proper motion to proceed in forma pauperis, even after being instructed to do so by the Clerk of Court (see Doc. 2). Given Plaintiff's failure to pay the full filing fee or to submit a proper motion to proceed in forma pauperis, this action DISMISSED without prejudice. The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to close this case on the Court's docket.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
G. Patrick Murphy United States District Judge
