LEONARD CARTER, JR., Plaintiff,
E.S. WILLIS, et al., Defendants.
MEMORANDUM OPINION (Dismissing Action Without Prejudice)
HENRY E. HUDSON, District Judge.
On October 10, 2013, the Court conditionally docketed Plaintiffs action. Plaintiff requested leave to proceed in forma pauperis. By Memorandum Order entered on November 14, 2013, the Court directed Plaintiff to pay an initial partial filing fee of $3.68 or state under penalty of perjury that he did not have sufficient assets to pay such a fee within eleven (11) days of the date of entry thereof. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(1). Plaintiff has neither paid the initial partial filing fee nor averred that he cannot pay such a fee. Therefore, Plaintiff is not entitled to proceed in forma pauperis. Plaintiffs disregard of the Court's directives warrants dismissal of the action. Accordingly, the action will be dismissed without prejudice.
The Clerk is directed to send a copy of the Memorandum Opinion to Plaintiff.
It is so ORDERED.
