IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 17, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
JON VANCE MCDADE,
ORDER DIRECTING DEPOSIT OF FUNDS
On December 11, 2012, the parties stipulated and on December 12, 2012, the Court ordered that "Defendants shall deposit with the Clerk of the U.S. District Court Check # 5841 payable to Jon McDade in the amount of $3,761.05, and that no amount shall be disbursed from Check # 5841 until further order of the Court." On December 13, 2012, the Clerk of the Court issued a Minute Order that stated: "Pursuant to AO guidelines, the stipulation and order to deposit funds (dkt #73) signed by the undersigned on December 11, 2012 is ordered stiken (sic.)."
A review of the record reveals that the problem concerning this check is that the Clerk of the Court may not accept checks made payable to a third party. Any such check or deposit must be made payable to the "Clerk of the Court".
Accordingly, the Court orders that:
1. The Minute Order dated December 13, 2012, is VACATED to the extent it prohibited Defendants from depositing any funds with the court;
2. Defendants shall deposit with the Clerk of the Court a check payable to the Clerk of the Court in the amount of $3,761.05; and
3. No amount shall be disbursed from this check until further order of the Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
