Date Filed Document Text
December 2, 2019 MAILED a blank application to proceed in forma pauperis and a copy of this order #5 to Plaintiff. (kp, )
December 2, 2019 Opinion or Order Filing 5 ORDER: Plaintiff's application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis #3 is denied without prejudice. Plaintiff must either: (1) pay the full statutory filing fee of $400; or (2) submit a properly supported renewed in forma pauperis application that (a) is certified by trust fund officers at all facilities where he was incarcerated from approximately April 24, 2019, to the present and (b) attaches copies of his trust fund statements showing activity in his accounts at those facilities during this period. If Plaintiff does not comply by January 7, 2020, the Court will summarily dismiss this lawsuit. Plaintiff's motion for attorney representation #4 is denied without prejudice because he has not attempted to obtain counsel himself, Pickett v. Chicago Transit Auth., 930 F.3d 869, 871 (7th Cir. 2019) (citing Pruitt v. Mote, 503 F.3d 647, 654 (7th Cir. 2007) (en banc)), and in any event, nothing suggests that Plaintiff is unable to respond to this order, which calls for basic financial information. Plaintiff is advised that he must promptly submit a change-of-address notification if he is released or transferred to another facility. If he does not keep the Clerk apprised of his correct address, this case will be subject to dismissal with no further warning, for the failure to prosecute it. The Clerk is directed to send a blank application to proceed in forma pauperis and a copy of this order to Plaintiff. Signed by the Honorable Manish S. Shah on 12/2/2019. Mailed notice. (kp, )
