Civ. No. 16-9539
H&M INTERNATIONAL TRANSPORT,
. THOMPSON, U.S.D.J.
This matter comes before the Court on the app ication filed by Plaintiff Andreas Plonka
(''Plaintiff') to proceed informa pauperis without pr ayment of fees, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §
1915. (ECF No. 5) .
. . .._ - -_ Iii co~sidJirig ~ applicatfon to proceed in for a pauperis, the Court generally conducts
, - a two-step _analysis.· See Roman_-~. Jeffes, 904 F .2d 19 , 194 n.1 (3d Cir~ 1990). First, the Court
determines whether the Plaintiff is eligible to proceed nder 28 U.S.C § 1915(a). Id. Second,
the Court detennines whether the Complaint should be dismissed because it is frivolous, Plaintiff
failed to state a claim upon which relief may be grante , or Plaintiff seeks money damages from
defendants who are-immun~fr()m such relief as require by 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e). See id.
This Court denied without prejudice Plaintiffs revious application to proceed in forma
· pauperis because he "failed.to sign the required affidav tin support of his application and has
also failed to provide his expected income." (ECF No. ). Plaintiff then filed the instant
-· -application to proceed i~form~ p~uperis. (ECF No. 5). In thi_s application, Plaintiff did sign the
required affidavit, but he agai11 failed to provide the Co
with his "Income amount expected
next month." Therefore, Plaintiff's application to p ceed in forma pauperis is again incomplete.
IT IS on this _It_._ day of February, 2017,
ORDERED that Plaintiff's application to pr ceed informa pauperis pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 1915 be and hereby is DENIED WITHOU PREJUDICE, and it is further
ORDERED that if Plaintiff wishes to reopen this case, he shall so notify the Court, in
writing addressed to the Clerk of the Court, Clarkson S. Fisher Building & U.S. Courthouse, 402
East State Street Trenton, NJ 08608 within thirty (30 days of the entry of this Order; Plaintiff's
writing shall include either ( 1) a complete, signed in
rma pauperis application or (2). the ..
necessary filing fee; and it is further
· .· filing the Complaint or assessing a filing fee. 1
