ORDER-WRITTEN OPINION signed by the Honorable Philip G. Reinhard on 3/10/2017: Plaintiff's application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis 3 is granted. The court authorizes and orders the trust fund officer at plaintiff's place of incarceration to forward to the Clerk of Court an initial partial filing fee of $19.24, and to continue making monthly deductions from plaintiff's account in accordance with this order. The court directs the clerk to mail a copy of this order to the trust fund office at the Dixon Correctional Center. However, the court summarily dismisses the complaint on initial review pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A for failure to state a colorable federal claim. The case is terminated. Plaintiff's motions for attorney representation 4 and for service of process at government expense 5 are denied as moot. This dismissal counts as one of plaintiff's three allotted dismissals under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g). [see STATEMENT-OPINION] Mailed notice (kms)
