STATE OF NEW MEXICO,
ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
THIS MATTER comes before the Court upon Petitioner’s Application (Motion) to
Proceed in District Court without Prepaying Fees or Costs [Doc. 5]. Having reviewed the
application, the Court FINDS and CONCLUDES that Petitioner’s request is well-taken and should
be granted. In making this determination, the Court notes that Petitioner has successfully
established that he is unable to prepay the required filing fee and/or that so doing will cause him
substantial hardship. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1).
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that Petitioner’s Application (Motion) to Proceed in
District Court without Prepaying Fees or Costs [Doc. 5] is hereby GRANTED.
