(a) Stipulation. Where, pursuant to 28
U.S.C. §1915, 28 U.S.C. §1916 or 45 U.S.C. §153(b),
a plaintiff seeks to commence a civil action without paying fees and costs or
giving security for them, the plaintiff and, if represented, counsel for the
plaintiff, shall file with the complaint a stipulation that the recovery, if
any, in the action shall be paid to the clerk, who shall pay from it the filing
fees and other costs not previously paid and remit the balance to the plaintiff
or counsel for plaintiff in accordance with section (b).
(b) Notification of Payment. Whenever money shall be paid to the clerk of this court in
compliance with section (a), the clerk shall notify the judge to whom the case
is assigned of the amount paid and of any fees prescribed by statute, including
those established by the Judicial Conference of the United States, which were
not collected because plaintiff was permitted to maintain an action without
prepayment of such fees. The judge shall thereupon enter an order directing the
clerk to pay from the amount such fees and costs as were not prepaid and to
remit the balance to plaintiff or counsel for plaintiff.
