On January 11, 2010, Plaintiff filed a motion requesting a total of $2,500 from the Court. Plaintiff seeks funds to hire a private investigator and paralegal. The expenditure of public funds on behalf of an indigent litigant is proper only when authorized by Congress. Tedder v. Odel, 890 F.2d 210, 211-12 (9th Cir. 1989) (per curiam) (citations omitted). The in forma pauperis statute does not authorize the expenditure of public funds for Plaintiff to hire a private investigator and paralegal. 28 U.S.C. § 1915. Accordingly, Plaintiff's request is DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: 77e0d6 v. (DOC. 5) JULIOUS, et al., Defendants. / TRAVON LEON FREEMAN, Plaintiff, CASE NO. 1:09-cv-02245-DLB (PC) ORDER DENYING MOTION REQUESTING FUNDS
