Sandoval v. Social Security Administration Commissioner
ORDER directing Plaintiff to file Amended IFP application on or before 6/26/12. Signed by Honorable James R. Marschewski on June 12, 2012. (lw)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
MIKE J. SANDOVAL
Civil No. 12-3068
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, Commissioner
Social Security Administration
Plaintiff has submitted a complaint for filing in this district, together with a request for leave to
proceed in forma pauperis (“IFP”). ECF Nos. 1,2. Plaintiff’s application will be returned to counsel because
the Court finds that more information is needed to rule on his IFP application.
Under question 3 of Plaintiff’s IFP application, he lists his income as only from “other sources,”
noting food stamps for $200 and contributions from his girlfriend to pay for his electric and cell phone bills,
which are the only monthly expenses listed in response to question 6. ECF No. 2. However, Plaintiff lists
several assets that he owns, most notably a “home and 2 lots” for $130,000, but lists no debts or financial
obligations. Id. Plaintiff must submit an amended IFP application and describe: the extent of his ownership
in the home and 2 lots, including if any other person has an interest in the property and how much each
person(s) holds in interest and whether there is any lien against the home and lots and any amount owed if
any lien exits. Plaintiff is directed to file his amended IFP application on or before June 26th, 2012.
Should Plaintiff fail to comply within the required time period, his complaint will be subject to
summary dismissal for failure to obey a court order.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 12th day of June 2012.
