IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
October 20, 2008
KEVEN CARTER, PLAINTIFF,
RANDOLPH COUNTY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge:
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
The Court denied Plaintiff's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis, finding that he had accumulate three or more strikes. Now before the Court is Plaintiff's motion to reconsider that finding (Doc. 5).*fn1
In his motion, Plaintiff does not challenge the Court's assessment of his strikes, nor does he allege that he is in imminent danger of serious physical harm due to the claims raised in this action.*fn2 Rather, he claims that he has accumulated those strikes due to inadequate assistance in the prison law library. Unfortunately, Plaintiff cannot blame others for lawsuits that he chose to file. Thus, the instant motion is DENIED.
The Court now grants him an additional 15 days, through and including November 4, 2008, in which to pay the $350 filing fee for this action. If he does not pay the filing fee by that date, this case will be closed for failure to comply with an order of this Court. FED.R.CIV.P. 41(b); see generally Ladien v. Astrachan, 128 F.3d 1051 (7th Cir. 1997); Johnson v. Kamminga, 34 F.3d 466 (7th Cir. 1994).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
