United States District Court, W.D. Kentucky, Louisville Division
December 30, 2014
JIMMIE LEE DENNISON et al., Plaintiffs,
ROEDERER CORRECTIONAL COMPLEX, Defendant.
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
THOMAS B. RUSSELL, District Judge.
By Order entered November 6, 2014, this Court ordered Plaintiff Teddy Albert Allman to pay his pro rata share of the filing fee. Plaintiff Allman was warned that failure to comply would result in dismissal of his case.
Plaintiff Allman has failed to pay the filing fee. Therefore, the Court, by separate Order, will dismiss Plaintiff Allman as a party to this action pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b) for failure to comply with a prior Order of this Court and failure to prosecute.
Plaintiff Allman remains obligated to pay his share of the filing fee notwithstanding his failure to comply with the prior Order of this Court. McGore v. Wrigglesworth, 114 F.3d 601, 605 (6th Cir. 1997) ("We conclude that by filing the complaint or notice of appeal, the prisoner waives any objection to the fee assessment by the district court.") (emphasis added), overruled on other grounds by Jones v. Bock, 549 U.S. 199 (2007).
Accordingly, the prior Order (DN 5) obligating Plaintiff Allman to pay his share of the filing fee, i.e., $175, in this action remains in full effect.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Kentucky State Penitentiary shall collect and forward the $175.00 from Plaintiff Allman's inmate account to the Clerk for full payment of the filing fee. The payment shall be sent to the following address:
