MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Plaintiff has filed a pro se civil rights complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, along with a motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. However, Plaintiff is well aware that he has had three or more prior prisoner actions dismissed on the grounds that they were frivolous, malicious, or failed to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.*fn1 Further, the allegations in the instant complaint do not show that Plaintiff is under imminent danger of serious physical injury. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is DENIED. Plaintiff shall pay the full filing fee of $350 for this action within FIFTEEN (15) DAYS of the entry of this Order. If Plaintiff does not comply with this Order in the time allotted, 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.
