Jonker HAWORTH, INC., Defendant. / ORDER GRANTING APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS ON APPEAL The court entered judgment in favor of defendant on March 27, 2017 (ECF No. 58). Plaintiff subsequently filed a notice of appeal in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals (ECF No. 60). This matter is now before the court on plaintiff’s application to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal (ECF No. 61). Plaintiff was allowed to proceed in forma pauperis in this Court. See Order (ECF No. 5). As a general rule, a party who was permitted to proceed in forma pauperis in the district court action may proceed on appeal in forma pauperis “without further authorization.” See Fed. R. App. P. 24(a)(3). This general rule applies to plaintiff. Furthermore, plaintiff’s present application indicates that she has insufficient funds to pay for this appeal. Accordingly, plaintiff’s application is GRANTED. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: May 4, 2017 /s/ Ray Kent RAY KENT United States Magistrate Judge
