The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gilbert, District Judge:
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This action came before the Court on Plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. 2). On December 20, 2011, Plaintiff was ordered to pay an initial partial filing fee of $20.80 and to file an affidavit containing the information required under § 1915(a)(1) to enable the Court to evaluate his current resources to determine whether to defer collection of the remainder of the unpaid fee in the amount of $329.20 not later than January 4, 2012 (Doc. 10). This date has since passed and Plaintiff has not tendered the $20.80 initial partial filing fee nor has he filed the affidavit. As a result, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that this action 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 Clerk is DIRECTED to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
