No. 3:06CV00200 GH DEFENDANTS PLAINTIFF EAST ARKANSAS FAMILY HEALTH CENTER, ET AL. ORDER Pursuant to General Order 29(A)(4), the Clerk's Office, on November 3rd, approved plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis ("IFP") and his complaint was filed. In accordance with that provision, the matter of plaintiff's indigency status was referred to this Court for review. The motion reflects that plaintiff was last employed on June 26th at a position that paid $40,000 a year, he has not received any money from any other source within the past twelve months, he has $25.00 in cash/checking/savings accounts, he does not have ownership in any valuable property, and he pays for the lights and cable bills of his grandmother. As it is clear that plaintiff must be receiving money or some type of support from some source(s) in order to obtain housing, food, clothing, and telephone as well as other necessities of life, plaintiff is directed to file a supplemental IFP motion that addresses the Court's concerns about the source(s) of his financial support within thirty (30) days of the file-date of this order.
