ORDER ON REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (ECF. NO. 10) 9 10 On February 8, 2018, Magistrate Judge Foley entered a report and recommendation that I 11 deny the application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss this case because plaintiff 12 Imhotep Salat can afford to pay the filing fee and has made inconsistent statements about his 13 income in other cases in this District.
