UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
ORDER DIRECTING PAYMENT OF FEES
OR IFP APPLICATION
COLLEEN McMAHON, Chief United States District Judge:
Plaintiff brings this action pro se. To proceed with a civil action in this Court, a plaintiff
must either pay $402.00 in fees – a $350.00 filing fee plus a $52.00 administrative fee – or, to
request authorization to proceed without prepayment of fees, submit a signed in forma pauperis
(“IFP”) application. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914, 1915.
Plaintiff submitted the complaint without the relevant fees or an IFP application. Within
thirty days of the date of this order, Plaintiff must either pay the $402.00 in fees or complete,
sign, and submit the attached IFP application. If Plaintiff submits the IFP application, it should
be labeled with docket number 1:21-CV-0807 (CM). If the Court grants the IFP application,
Plaintiff will be permitted to proceed without prepayment of fees. See § 1915(a)(1).
The Clerk of Court is directed to mail a copy of this order to Plaintiff and note service on
the docket. No summons shall issue at this time. If Plaintiff complies with this order, this action
shall be processed in accordance with the procedures of the Clerk’s Office. If Plaintiff fails to
comply with this order within the time allowed, this action will be dismissed.
The Court certifies under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3) that any appeal from this order would
not be taken in good faith, and therefore IFP status is denied for the purpose of an appeal. Cf.
