Copus v. Hepler

United States District Court, W.D. Wisconsin

January 9, 2018

PATRICIA COPUS, AUSTAN BARDELL AND ERIK HEDBERG, Plaintiffs,
v.
TODD HELPER AND JANE E. KOHLEWEY, Defendants.

          ORDER

          PETER OPPENEER, Magistrate Judge

         Plaintiffs Patricia Copus, Austan Bardell and Erik Hedberg have filed a proposed civil complaint, but have not paid the filing fee nor requested leave to proceed without prepayment. For this case to proceed, plaintiffs must each pay the $400 filing fees or submit properly supported motions for leave to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee no later than February 1, 2018.

         A motion for leave to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee must be accompanied by a certified copy of plaintiff's inmate trust fund account statement (or institutional equivalent) for the six-month period immediately preceding the date of the complaint. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2). If I find that any of the plaintiffs are indigent, I will calculate an initial partial payment amount that must be paid before the court can screen the merits of the complaint under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2). Thereafter, plaintiffs will be required to pay the balance of the filing fee in installments.

         ORDER

         ORDER IT IS ORDERED that plaintiffs Patricia Copus, Austan Bardell and Erik Hedberg may have until February 1, 2018 to each submit the $400 filing fee or a motion for leave to proceed without prepayment and a trust fund account statement for the period beginning approximately August 8, 2017 and ending approximately January 8, 2018. If, by February 1, 2018, plaintiffs fails to respond to this order, I will assume that plaintiff wishes to withdraw from this action voluntarily.
