Filed Nonprecedential Disposition PER CURIAM. Wheeler’s dishonesty has frustrated the administration of §1915 in both the district court and this court. Wheeler was allowed to litigate this suit, including the appeal, without prepayment of filing fees, but those fees are nonetheless due. He must now pay the fees due in both courts. Until he does so, he may not litigate in forma pauperis in any court of this circuit. And Wheeler must understand and report to the courts in any future litigation that he has at least two statutory strikes, and that litigation in forma pauperis will be curtailed by §1915(g) if he acquires a third. He may already have a third: a frivolous appeal, no less than a frivolous suit, qualifies as a strike. See Coleman v. Tollefson, 135 S. Ct. 1759 (2015) (discussing the operation of §1915(g)). We have not analyzed the appeals in all 14 of Wheeler’s suits, but perhaps one or more of them counts as a strike. Wheeler must make full disclosure about both his suits and his appeals in any future litigation. AFFIRMED. William J. Bauer, Circuit Judge; Frank H. Easterbrook, Circuit Judge and Ilana Diamond Rovner, Circuit Judge. [6845660-1] [6845660] [15-3325]
