IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
March 25, 2013
BARACK OBAMA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Joseph F. Bataillon United States District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the court on its own motion. On March 4, 2013, Plaintiff filed his Complaint. (Filing No. 1.) On March 18, 2013, Plaintiff filed a Motion for Waiver of Fees, which the court liberally construes as a Motion for Leave to Proceed In Forma Pauperis ("IFP"). (Filing No. 4.) However, due to certain technical defects, the Complaint cannot be further processed until such defects are corrected. To assure further consideration of the Complaint, Plaintiff must correct the defect listed below. FAILURE TO CORRECT THE DEFECT WILL RESULT IN DISMISSAL OF THE COMPLAINT.
Plaintiff did not include a copy of his prison trust account statement with his IFP Motion. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2) (requiring a "prisoner seeking to bring a civil action . . . without prepayment of fees" to "submit a certified copy of the trust fund account statement (or institutional equivalent) for the prisoner for the 6-month period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint . . . , obtained from the appropriate official of each prison at which the prisoner is or was confined"). Accordingly, Plaintiff shall have until April 26, 2013, to either tender the $350.00 fee to the Clerk of the court or submit a prison trust account statement in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff is directed to correct the above-listed technical defect in the Complaint on or before April 26, 2013.
2. Failure to comply with this Memorandum and Order will result in dismissal of this matter without further notice.
