ORDER: Plaintiff lacks sufficient financial resources from which to pay the full filing fee in advance, the application 2 is GRANTED. Plaintiff is assessed the civil filing fee of $350.00. Custodian of plaintiff's inmate trust account at the institution where he resides is directed to submit to the Clerk of Court an initial partial payment according to the terms outlined in this order. The court finds for the reasons stated in the Memorandum Opinion filed herewith that the compl aint, alleging overcrowding and unsanitary conditions at the Sumner County Jail, fails to state a colorable claim under § 1983 for which relief may be granted. The complaint is therefore DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE in its entirety. Signed by District Judge Aleta A. Trauger on 5/9/13. (xc:Pro se party by regular and certified mail. Administrator of the Robertson County Jail by regular mail.)(DOCKET TEXT SUMMARY ONLY-ATTORNEYS MUST OPEN THE PDF AND READ THE ORDER.)(dt)
