MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

LYLE E. STROM, Sr., District Judge.

This matter is before the Court on Motions for Leave to Proceed in Forma Pauperis ("IFP") filed by the following plaintiffs: Lisa Sexton (Filing No. 2 and Filing No. 58), Alisa Parde (Filing No. 54), Erica Cochran (Filing No. 57), Frances Beaver (Filing No. 59), Tamara Evans (Filing No. 60), Sharon Turnell (Filing No. 61), Elisa Seastrong (Filing No. 62), Christina Glass (Filing No. 63), Sydney Decapiano (Filing No. 64), Caroline Richardson (Filing No. 65), and Ashley Griffith (Filing No. 66). The Court has received certified copies of these plaintiffs' trust account statements. These plaintiffs are permitted to proceed IFP.

Pursuant to the Prison Litigation Reform Act, a prisoner plaintiff is required to pay the full amount of the court's $350.00 filing fee by making monthly payments to the Court, even if the prisoner is proceeding IFP. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b). "[T]he PLRA makes prisoners responsible for their filing fees the moment the prisoner brings a civil action or files an appeal." In re Tyler , 110 F.3d at 529-30 (8th Cir. 1997); Jackson v. N.P. Dodge Realty Co. , 173 F.Supp.2d 951 (D. Neb. 2001).

Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1), plaintiffs must pay an initial partial filing fee in the amount of 20 percent of the greater of plaintiff's average monthly account balance or average monthly deposits for the six months preceding the filing of the complaint. Accordingly, the Court finds that:

• Lisa Sexton's initial partial filing fee is $4.96, based on an average monthly account balance of $24.81.

• Alisa Parde's initial partial filing fee is $4.92, based on an average monthly account balance of $24.63.

• Erica Cochran's initial partial filing fee is $1.93, based on an average monthly account balance of $9.66.

• Frances Beaver's initial partial filing fee is $11.97, based on an average monthly account balance of $59.89.

• Tamara Evans' initial partial filing fee is $2.58, based on an average monthly account balance of $12.91.

• Sharon Turnell's initial partial filing fee is $0.11, based on an average monthly account balance of $0.55.

• Elisa Seastrong's initial partial filing fee is $5.24, based on an average monthly account balance of $26.21.

• Christina Glass' initial partial filing fee is $13.79, based on an average monthly account balance of $68.96.

• Sydney Decapiano's initial partial filing fee is $15.21, based on an average monthly account balance of $76.08.

• Caroline Richardson's initial partial filing fee is $27.53, based on an average monthly ...
