ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S
MOTION TO PROCEED IN FORMA
CASE NO. 1:17-CV-0886-AWI-EPG
THE RIGHT MOVE 4 U, et al.,
ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF’S
REQUEST FOR PERMISSION TO EFILE
20 Plaintiff Madhu Sameer (“Plaintiff”) brings the instant action, alleging that the defendant moving
21 companies and their employees (“Defendants”) misappropriated Plaintiff’s property. Along with
22 the Complaint, Plaintiff filed a motion to proceed in forma pauperis and a supporting affidavit
23 including a statement of assets and liabilities. Doc. 2; see 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1). Plaintiff owns
24 a 2012 Toyota Prius and a home in California, collectively valued at approximately $306,000.00.
25 Doc. 2 at 2. Plaintiff also has $1,500.00 in cash. Id. Although Plaintiff is unemployed and does
26 have monthly expenses, Plaintiff has assets and other income such that the Court cannot
27 conclude that Plaintiff is “unable to pay” the required $400.00 filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. §
28 1915(a)(1). Plaintiff’s motion to proceed in forma pauperis will is DENIED. Plaintiff must pay
1 the $400.00 filing fee within 45 days of the date of this order or this action will be dismissed
2 without prejudice.
Next, Plaintiff has requested leave to be permitted to e-file documents in this Court’s
4 CM/ECF case management system. Plaintiff lives in New Zealand. Plaintiff represents that
5 mailing documents to this Court from New Zealand takes up to 15 days. E-filing privileges
6 would significantly reduce the inconvenience to Plaintiff. The Request for Leave is GRANTED.
7 The Clerk of the Court is directed to mail to Plaintiff the “Petition by Pro Se Litigant for ECF
8 Registration and Consent to Electronic Service.” Plaintiff shall be responsible for filing all
9 documents in paper form, until such time as Plaintiff signs and returns the Clerk’s “Petition by
10 Pro Se Litigant” form and is issued a login and password. In addition, Plaintiff must provide to
11 the clerk and must maintain a working email address.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
