IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA MACON DIVISION DANNY JOSEPH WILSON, Plaintiff, v. JULIA ABRAMS et. al, Defendants. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) CIVIL ACTION NO. 5:10-CV-312 (MTT) ORDER This matter is before the Court on the Plaintiff’s motion for leave to appeal in forma pauperis. (Doc. 45). The Magistrate Judge assigned to the case initially granted the Plaintiff’s motion to proceed in forma pauperis in the district-court action. On August 8, 2011, the Court entered an order granting the Defendants’ motion to dismiss. (Doc. 41). The Plaintiff now seeks to appeal that order. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3), “[a]n appeal may not be taken in forma pauperis if the trial court certifies in writing that it is not taken in good faith.” For the reasons set forth in the Court’s order granting the Defendants’ motion to dismiss, in the Court’s best judgment, an appeal from that order cannot be taken in good faith. Accordingly, the Plaintiff’s motion for leave to appeal in forma pauperis is DENIED. SO ORDERED, this 13th day of October, 2011. S/ Marc T. Treadwell MARC T. TREADWELL, JUDGE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
