MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
STEPHEN N. LIMBAUGH, Jr., District Judge.
Plaintiff, a prisoner, seeks leave to proceed in forma pauperis in this civil action under Bivens v. Six Unknown Agents. Having reviewed plaintiff's financial information, the Court assesses a partial initial filing fee of $15.00, which is twenty percent of his average monthly deposit. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b).
Plaintiff is imprisoned in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. He alleges that he has been abused by prison staff there.
Under 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b), venue lies in the district where defendants are located. Title 28 U.S.C. § 1406 states that the Court may dismiss an action if venue is not proper. As a result, this action is dismissed.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the plaintiff must pay an initial filing fee of $15.00 within thirty (30) days of the date of this Order. Plaintiff is instructed to make his remittance payable to "Clerk, United States District Court, " and to include upon it: (1) his name; (2) his prison registration number; (3) the case number; and (4) that the remittance is for an original proceeding.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED.
An Order of Dismissal will be filed separately.
