SHIELDS, et al., Defendants. ___________________________/ OPINION AND ORDER OF DISMISSAL The Court has before it Michigan prisoner Robert Brown’s pro se civil rights complaint brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. In his complaint, Brown raises concerns about corrections officers identifying him as an informant, which he asserts is endangering him and his family. At the time he filed his complaint, Brown did not pay the required filing fee and administrative fee, nor did he submit a proper application to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2). Consequently, the Court issued a deficiency order requiring Brown to either pay the filing fee and administrative fee or submit a properly completed application to proceed without prepayment of the filing fee within 30 days – by June 23, 2017. The order provided that if Brown did not do so, his case would be dismissed. Brown has failed to correct the deficiency within the allotted time for doing so.
