The court may authorize an 15 indigent prisoner to begin a habeas action without paying the $5 fee if the he or she submits an IFP 16 application on the approved form along with the appropriate supporting documentation. 28 U.S.C. 17 § 1915(a); LSR 1-1, LSR 1-2. 18 Although Fleming submitted the required form, the supporting documents show he is able 19 to pay the $5 filing fee. Thus, Fleming does not qualify for a fee waiver. The Court therefore 20 denies the IFP application and gives Fleming 45 days to pay the filing fee. 21 IT THEREFORE IS ORDERED: 22 1.
