Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 933 F.2d 1007 (6th Cir. 1991) May 21, 1991

Before ALAN E. NORRIS and SUHRHEINRICH, Circuit Judges, and CELEBREZZE, Senior Circuit Judge.


This matter has been referred to a panel of the court. A review of the documents before the court indicates that the judgment dismissing the civil rights action was entered February 6, 1991. Plaintiff filed a notice of appeal on February 26, 1991 (appeal No. 91-5278). An order denying pauper status was filed February 28, 1991. Plaintiff filed a duplicate notice of appeal on April 1, 1991, in which he changed the date of service (appeal No. 91-5468).

Appeal No. 91-5468 is a duplicate appeal. Fed. R. App. P. 24(a) provides that if pauper status is denied by the district court a motion for pauper status may be filed with the appellate court. Such a motion was filed in appeal No. 91-5278. Any issue which plaintiff seeks to have this court review should be raised in appeal No. 91-5278.

Accordingly, it is ORDERED that appeal No. 91-5468 be, and it hereby is, dismissed. Rule 8(a), Rules of the Sixth Circuit.
