|STANTON S. HOLT,||
(D.C. No. 98-CV-3072-GTV)
This is an appeal from the dismissal of a pro se civil rights complaint for failure to state a claim for which relief can be granted. Within this appeal, Mr. Holt has also filed a document entitled "60-801 Writ of Mandamus" seeking a refund by the district court of his partial filing fee because his complaint was dismissed.
Congress clearly contemplated such a result because it provided no statutory authority for such a refund. Under the express terms of the Prison Litigation Reform Act, the prisoner is required to pay all installments of a deferred fee until it is paid in full. No exception was made for a dismissed suit. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)(2). The "Writ of Mandamus" petition is therefore DENIED.
Further, our review indicates the district court committed no error and this appeal is frivolous. See Hall v. Bellmon, 935 F.2d 1106, 1109 (10th Cir. 1991). This holding will constitute a "prior occasion" under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g). The judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED for the reasons stated in its order of March 13, 1998. The mandate shall issue forthwith.
