MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
On July 7, 2010, Plaintiff filed a complaint alleging Section 1983 violations against the defendants.
On December 17, 2010, this Court entered an order that Plaintiff must either pay the required filing fee of $350, or file a properly supported motion to proceed in forma pauperis, within thirty (30) days of this Court's order, and that failure to comply with the order would result in dismissal of this case. (Doc. 6) The order and a form motion to proceed in forma pauperis were mailed by the Clerk to the Plaintiff on December 21, 2010. More than thirty (30) days have since passed and the Plaintiff has not filed a motion to proceed in forma pauperis, nor has he paid the filing fee. As a result, this case is DISMISSED without prejudice 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). The $350 filing fee remains due and payable. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1); Lucien v. Jockisch, 133 F.3d 464, 467 (7th Cir. 1998).
