(Doc. 3) The Court may 18 authorize the commencement of an action without prepayment of fees “by a person who submits an 19 affidavit that includes a statement of all assets such person . . . possesses [and] that the person is 20 unable to pay such fees or give security therefor.” 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). The Court has reviewed the 21 application and the information provided is insufficient to determine whether Plaintiff satisfies the 22 requirements of 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). 23 According to his application, Plaintiff is not employed and had no income for the past twelve 24 months. (Doc. 3 at 1) Plaintiff indicates he does not possess real estate, stocks, bonds, securities, other 25 financial instruments, an automobile, or other things of value—and has no money in a bank account. 26 (Id. at 2) In addition, Plaintiff indicates he does not have any financial responsibilities including 27 housing or transportation. (Id.) Consequently, the Court is unable to determine if Plaintiff is 28 supporting himself, or if he is dependent upon another individual who could pay the filing fee. 1 1 Accordingly, Plaintiff is ORDERED to file, within fourteen days of this order, an application 2 that includes information on how Plaintiff is supporting himself, or his dependence on another. Upon 3 receipt of this information, the Court will resume consideration of Plaintiff’s motion to proceed in 4 forma pauperis. Plaintiff is warned that failure to comply with this order may result in denial of his 5 application to proceed in forma pauperis. 6 IT IS SO ORDERED. 7 8 Dated: February 8, 2017 /s/ Jennifer L.
