CLERK TO SEND APPLICATION TO
PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS AS A
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding with counsel in a civil rights action pursuant
to 42 U.S.C. ' 1983. Plaintiff submitted two applications to proceed in forma pauperis
(ECF Nos. 3 & 5) however, as Plaintiff is a prisoner, he is obligated to pay the full filing
fee of $400.00. In forma pauperis status merely allows Plaintiff to proceed without the
prepayment of the filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. ' 1915(b)(1).
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
Within forty-five (45) days of the date of service of this order, Plaintiff shall submit
the attached application to proceed in forma pauperis as a prisoner, completed and
signed, or in the alternative, pay the $400.00 filing fee for this action. No requests for
extension will be granted without a showing of good cause. Failure to comply
with this order will result in dismissal of this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
