That same date, Plaintiff also filed a Financial Affidavit form (Doc. 18), which the Court construes to be a Motion to Proceed Informa Pauperis on Appeal. Having considered the application to proceed without prepayment of fees, the application or motion is DENIED. Plaintiff has indicated that while he is unemployed, his spouse earns a salary of $5,000.00 per month. Therefore, Plaintiff is not entitled to proceed on appeal without payment of the filing fee.
