ENTRY Dismissing Complaint and Directing Further Proceedings - The plaintiff shall have through March 8, 2017, in which to either pay the $400.00 filing fee for this action or demonstrate that he lacks the financial ability to do so. For the foregoing reasons, the complaint is dismissed. The dismissal of the complaint will not lead to the dismissal of the action at present. Instead, the plaintiff shall have through March 8, 2017, in which to file an amended complaint. In organizing his complaint, the plaintiff may benefit from utilizing the Court's complaint form. The clerk is directed to include a copy of the prisoner civil rights complaint form along with the plaintiff's copy of this Entry. If an amended complaint is filed as directed above, it will be screened. If no amended complaint is filed, this action will be dismissed for the reasons set forth above. (See Entry.)
