Case 1:20-cv-00927-JB-KRS Document 7 Filed 09/07/21 Page 1 of 1
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
No. CV 20-00927 JB/KRS
MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT CENTER,
ORDER GRANTING LEAVE TO PROCEED PURSUANT TO 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b)
THIS MATTER is before the Court on the Application to Proceed in District Court
Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Doc. 4) filed by Plaintiff Jeremiah Ordonez. Because the Court
grants the application, the filing fee for this civil rights complaint is $350.00. Based on the
information about Plaintiff’s financial status (Doc. 4 at 3), the Court will waive an initial partial
payment pursuant to § 1915(b)(1). Plaintiff is still required to pay the full amount of the filing fee
pursuant to § 1915(b)(1). Failure to comply with this order may result in dismissal of the complaint
without further notice.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Application to Proceed in District Court
Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Doc. 4) filed by Plaintiff Jeremiah Ordonez is GRANTED and
the initial payment is WAIVED;
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff file monthly financial certificates and make
monthly payments of twenty percent (20%) of the preceding month’s income credited to his
account until the fee is paid or show cause why the payment should be excused; and the Clerk is
directed to provide Plaintiff with two copies of the post-filing financial certificate.
