EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SWIFT TRANSPS, et al.
Case No.: 1:17-cv-1349-LJO-BAM
ORDER GRANTING APPLICATION TO
PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
(ECF No. 5)
Plaintiff Christopher Renfro (“Plaintiff”), appearing pro se, filed the complaint in this
action on October 6, 2017. (ECF No. 1.) Plaintiff did not pay the filing fee in this action and
instead filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. (ECF
No. 3.) On October 17, 2017, the Court found that Plaintiff’s application was not properly
completed, and Plaintiff was ordered to file a long form application to proceed in forma pauperis,
plaintiff filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915.
Plaintiff’s application demonstrates entitlement to proceed without prepayment of fees.
Notwithstanding this order, the Court does not direct that service be undertaken until the Court
screens the complaint in due course and issues its screening order.
Accordingly, the Court GRANTS Plaintiff’s motion to proceed in forma pauperis.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
