Date Filed Document Text
May 29, 2019 Opinion or Order Filing 4 NOTICE AND ORDER: Respondents, paying the full filing fee, removed this action from state court on May 28, 2019. The case has been assigned to Judge J. Phil Gilbert and all pleadings shall bear the case number 19-555-JPG.The Mandamus Petition appears to be a civil action, filed by a prisoner (as defined by the Prison Litigation Reform Act), seeking redress from a governmental entity and/or officer or employee of a governmental entity. Such actions are subject to a preliminary merits review pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Sec. 1915A. Martin v. United States, 96 F.3d 853, 854 (7th Cir. 1996). Accordingly, if the Court finds that removal is proper, the Court will proceed with reviewing the Petition pursuant to Section 1915A. The Court will conduct this review within the next 60 days and inform the parties of the findings in a Merit Review Order. If the parties do not receive a Merit Review Order within the next 60 days, a motion for status may be filed. If the Petition survives the merit review, further information and instruction will be provided at that time. Any communication directed to the Court should be in the form of a motion or other pleading and not a letter. All mail should be sent to: Clerk's Office, U.S. District Court, 750 Missouri Avenue, East St. Louis, IL 62201. A copy of the Notice and Consent to Proceed Before a Magistrate Judge form is attached to this Order.
