Case 1:18-cv-00413-JCH-KRS Document 33 Filed 09/07/21 Page 1 of 1
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
No. CV 18-00413 JCH/KRS
ALISHA LUCERO, et al.,
ORDER GRANTING MOTION LEAVE TO PROCEED ON APPEAL
WITHOUT PREPAYMENT OF FEES OR COSTS
THIS MATTER having come before the Court on the Motion for Leave to Proceed on
Appeal Without Prepayment of Fees or Costs (Doc. 31) filed by Petitioner, Bryce Franklin.
Petitioner Franklin is an incarcerated prisoner for purposes of 28 U.S.C. § 1915 and the form of
motion he has submitted is not the proper form for a prisoner. However, Petitioner Franklin is a
frequent litigant in this Court and has demonstrated that he is eligible to proceed in forma pauperis
under § 1915. See, e.g., Franklin v. Lucero, No. CV 18-01156 JB/JHR, Doc. 11). Based on his
prior showing of eligibility and on his current conditions of incarceration due to COVID-19 (Doc.
31), the Court will grant the Motion for Leave to Proceed on Appeal Without Prepayment of Fees
or Costs and will waive an initial partial payment.
IT IS ORDERED that the Motion for Leave to Proceed on Appeal Without Prepayment
of Fees or Costs (Doc. 31) filed by Petitioner, Bryce Franklin, is GRANTED, and Petitioner may
proceed without prepayment of costs or other fees or the necessity of giving security therefor.
