Williams v. American International Recovery

United States District Court, D. South Carolina

August 25, 2016

Randy Williams, Plaintiff,
v.
American International Recovery; McAngus, Goudelock & Courie LLC; Pamela Gadsden, and E. Scott Winburn, Defendants.

          ORDER

          Kaymani D. West United States Magistrate Judge

         This is a civil action filed by a pro se litigant. Under Local Civil Rule 73.02(B)(2) (DSC), pretrial proceedings in this action have been referred to the undersigned United States Magistrate Judge.

         PAYMENT OF THE FILING FEE:

         Plaintiff has submitted an Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees and Affidavit (Form AO 240), which is being construed as a Motion for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915. A review of the Motion reveals that Plaintiff should be relieved of the obligation to prepay the full filing fee. Plaintiff's Motion for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis (ECF No. 2) is granted, subject to the court's right to require a payment if Plaintiff's financial condition changes, and to tax fees and costs against Plaintiff at the conclusion of this case if the court finds the case to be without merit. See Flint v. Haynes, 651 F.2d 970, 972-74 (4th Cir. 1981).

         TO PLAINTIFF:

         Plaintiff must place the civil action number (C/A No. 4:16-1758) listed above on any document provided to the Court provided in connection with this case. Any future filings must be sent to the address below. All documents requiring Plaintiff's signature shall be signed with Plaintiff's full legal name written in Plaintiff's own handwriting. Pro se litigants, such as Plaintiff, shall not use the “s/typed name” format used in the Electronic Case Filing System. In all future filings with this court, Plaintiff is directed to use letter-sized (8½ inches by 11 inches) paper only, to write or type text on one side of a sheet of paper only and not to write or type on both sides of any sheet of paper. Plaintiff is further instructed not to write to the edge of the paper, but to maintain one-inch margins on the top, bottom, and sides of each paper submitted. Plaintiff is a pro se litigant. Plaintiff's attention is directed to the following important notice:

You are ordered to always keep the Clerk of Court advised in writing (Post Office Box 2316, Florence, South Carolina 29503) if your address changes for any reason, so as to assure that orders or other matters that specify deadlines for you to meet will be received by you. If as a result of your failure to comply with this Order, you fail to meet a deadline set by this court, your case may be dismissed for violating this Order. Therefore, if you have a change of address before this case is ended, you must comply with this Order by immediately advising the Clerk of Court in writing of such change of address and providing the court with the docket numbers of all pending cases you have filed with this court. Your failure to do so will not be excused by the court.

         TO THE CLERK OF COURT:

         This case is subject to summary dismissal based on an initial screening conducted pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 and/or 28 U.S.C. § 1915A. Therefore, the Clerk of Court shall not issue the summonses or forward this matter to the United States Marshal for service of process at this time.

         The Clerk of Court shall not enter any change of address submitted by Plaintiff that directs that mail be sent to a person other than Plaintiff unless that person is an attorney admitted to practice before this court who has entered a formal appearance.

         IT IS SO ORDERED.

         IMPORTANT INFORMATION . . . PLEASE READ CAREFULLY WARNING TO PRO SE PARTY OR NONPARTY FILERS

Rule 5.2 applies to ALL documents submitted for filing, including pleadings, exhibits to pleadings, discovery responses, and any other document submitted by any party or nonparty for filing. Unless otherwise ordered by the court, a party or nonparty filer should not put certain types of an individual's personal identifying information in documents submitted for filing to any United States District Court.
