ORDER by Magistrate Judge Karen B. Molzen granting 2 Motion to Proceed under 28 U.S.C. 1915. (KBM)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
No. CV 20-00657 MV/KBM
STATE OF NEW MEXICO,
ORDER GRANTING LEAVE TO PROCEED
PURSUANT TO 28 U.S.C. § 1915(b),
AND TO MAKE PAYMENTS OR SHOW CAUSE
This matter is before the Court on the Applications to Proceed in District Court Without
Prepaying Fees or Costs filed by Plaintiff Angel Dominguez. (Doc. 2). Based on analysis of his
Application and the inmate account statement (Doc. 5 at 3-6), the Court grants Plaintiff leave to
proceed under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a) and (b). Because the Court grants the application, the filing
fee for this civil rights complaint is $350.00. Pursuant to § 1915(b)(1), Plaintiff is required to
make installment payments until the full amount of the filing fee is paid.
Plaintiff’s inmate account statement shows total deposits over the six-month period
preceding filing in the amount of $3,033.00 and average monthly deposits in the amount of
$505.50. (Doc. 5 at 3-6). Analyzing Plaintiff’s inmate account statement (Doc. 5 at 3-6) under §
1915(b)(1), the Court finds that Plaintiff owes an initial partial payment of $101.10 (20% of
$505.50). If Plaintiff fails to make a payment by the designated deadline or show cause why such
payment should be excused, the civil rights complaint may be dismissed without further notice.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Application to Proceed in District Court Without
Prepaying Fees or Costs filed by Plaintiff Angel Dominguez (Doc. 2) and the Motion to Cure
Deficiency (Doc. 5) are GRANTED;
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, within thirty (30) days of entry of this Order, Plaintiff
send to the Clerk an initial partial payment of $101.10 or show cause why payment should be
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk is directed to provide Plaintiff with two copies
of this Order, and that Plaintiff make the necessary arrangements to attach one copy of this Order
to the check in the $101.10 amount of the initial partial payment;
IT IS FINALLY ORDERED that, after payment of the $101.10 initial partial fee, Plaintiff
make monthly payments of twenty per cent (20%) of the preceding month’s income credited to his
account or show cause why the designated payments should be excused.
