MEMORANDUM AND ORDER: Plaintiff's application is GRANTED [Doc. 1] and he is permitted to file this case without prepayment of the fee. However, because Plaintiff is an inmate in the West Tennessee State Penitentiary ("WTSP") in Henning, Tennessee, he is ASSESSED the civil filing fee of $350.00. The Clerk is DIRECTED to send a copy of this Order to the custodian of inmate accounts at WTSP to ensure compliance with these fee-assessment procedures. The Clerk is also DIRECTED to forward a copy of this Order to the Court's financial deputy. The Court FINDS that Plaintiff's pro se ยง 1983 civil rights complaint is barred by the applicable statute of limitations and that equitable tolling does not salvage this otherwise time-barred case. Signed by District Judge Thomas W Phillips on 7/17/17. (copy mailed to Plaintiff, custodian of inmate accounts at WTSP; forwarded to Court's Financial deputy via NEF) (JBR)
