Hon. Paul L. Maloney
ORDER GRANTING APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS ON
Plaintiff has appealed the order dismissing his case. This matter is now before the
Court on his application to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal (ECF No. 8). Plaintiff was
allowed to proceed in forma pauperis in this Court. See Order (ECF No. 4). 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. Accordingly, plaintiff’s application (ECF No. 8) is GRANTED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
