HONORABLE JOHN CORBETT O’MEARA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
OPINION AND ORDER DENYING THE
MOTION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS ON APPEAL
On February 11, 2016, this Court denied petitioner’s habeas application that had
been brought pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 and also denied petitioner a certificate of
appealability and leave to appeal in forma pauperis. The United States Court of Appeals
for the Sixth Circuit subsequently denied petitioner’s application for a certificate of
appealability, his motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis, and dismissed the
appeal. Bell v. Bauman, No. 16-1394 (6th Cir. August 15, 2016).
Pending before the Court is petitioner’s “Motion To Proceed In Forma Pauperis on
In light of the fact that the Sixth Circuit has dismissed petitioner’s appeal and
denied him leave to appeal in forma pauperis, the motion to proceed in forma pauperis on
appeal will be denied as moot. See e.g. United States v. Gardner, No. CRIM.A.
09-147-KKC, 2013 WL 3070866, at *1 (E.D. Ky. June 17, 2013).
IT IS ORDERED that Petitioner’s “Motion To Proceed In Forma Pauperis on
Appeal” [Dkt. # 15] is DENIED AS MOOT.
