November 6, 2019 Opinion or Order Filing 7 ORDER: Plaintiff's application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis #3 is granted. The Court orders the trust fund officer at the facility having custody of Plaintiff to deduct $16.54 from his account for payment to the Clerk as an initial partial payment of the filing fee, and to continue making monthly deductions in accordance with this order. Plaintiff's complaint #1 , however, is dismissed without prejudice, and summonses shall not issue. The Court grants Plaintiff's motion for attorney representation #4 and requests that Thomas C. McDonough, Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg, Two North LaSalle Street, Suite 1700, Chicago, Illinois 60602, tmcdonough@ngelaw.com, represent Plaintiff, in this case only, in accordance with counsel's trial bar obligations under the District Court's Local Rule 83.37 (N.D. Ill.). Counsel is granted until January 7, 2020, to file an amended complaint that comports with counsel's obligations under Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Recruited counsel falls within the class of users listed in the Electronic Public Access fee schedule adopted by the Judicial Conference of the United States, therefore, counsel shall be exempt from the payment of fees for access via PACER to the electronic case files maintained in this court for the above-captioned case. Recruited counsel is directed to open a separate PACER account to only be used for this case, and fees are exempt for the above-captioned case only; he shall not be exempt from the payment of fees incurred in connection with other uses of the PACER system in this court. This exemption is valid immediately and for the duration of counsel's participation in the matter. This exemption may be revoked at the discretion of the Court at any time.
