WILLIAMS v. CAMDEN COUNTY JAIL Doc. 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY DANIEL CLARK WILLIAMS, Plaintiff, Civil Action No. 16-7379 (JBS-AMD) v. MEMORANDUM OPINION CAMDEN COUNTY JAIL, Defendant. SIMANDLE, Chief District Judge Plaintiff Daniel Clark Williams seeks to bring this civil action in forma pauperis (“IFP”), without prepayment of fees or security. IFP Application, Docket Entry 1-1. According to the application submitted by Plaintiff, Plaintiff earns $2,440 per month, from wages and received benefits, and has $400 in his checking accounts. Id. After taking into consideration the listed monthly expenses,1 it appears Plaintiff is able to pay the $350 filing fee and $50 administrative fee. His application to proceed in forma pauperis is therefore denied. This matter shall be administratively terminated pending submission of the filing and administrative fees. 1 Plaintiff indicates he spends $2,120 per month; however, that number includes $200 per month on “recreation, entertainment, newspapers, magazines, etc.” Plaintiff therefore can pay the filing and administrative fees without being deprived of life’s necessities.
