Date Filed#Document Text
January 13, 2015 10 Opinion or Order of the Court ORDER dismissing as moot 3 Motion for Summary Judgment; adopting 4 Report and Recommendations.; dismissing as moot 7 Motion for Hearing. The Clerk of Court is directed to close the case. As to any future civil actions sought to be commenced i n forma pauperis ("IFP") by Robbins, the Clerk shall receive the papers, open a single miscellaneous file for tracking purposes, and forward the papers to the presiding district judge in this case for a determination as to whether Robbins q ualifies for IFP status and whether he has stated a claim with any arguable merit. Only if the pleading alleges a plausible claim for relief will the Court allow it 'to be filed. IFP complaints that tail to pass muster under 28 U.S.C. § 191 5(e) will be dismissed without any further judicial action after 30 days from thedate the complaint is received by the Clerk, unless the Court orders otherwise. This automatic dismissal of insubstantial claims 'will reduce the burden of papermov ing and explanation-writing, conserving a little judicial time for litigants who deserve attention." Alexander v. United States, 121 F.3d 312, 315 (7th Cir. 1997). Thus, although the Court will read and consider any future IFP application and co mplaint that Robbins endeavors to file, it will not necessarily enter an order addressing the IFP application or complaint. If no order is forthcoming, then 30 days after the complaint's receipt the Clerk shall, without awaiting any further direction, notifyRobbins that his case has been dismissed without prejudicepursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e). Signed by Judge William T. Moore, Jr on 1/13/15. (wwp)
