KEITH CORNELL, ACTING FAMILY
COURT JUDGE; THE LEGAL AID SOCIETY
OF ROCKLAND COUNTY,
ORDER DIRECTING PAYMENT OF FEES
OR IFP APPLICATION
LAURA TAYLOR SWAIN, 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 in forma pauperis (IFP), that is, without prepayment of fees,
submit a signed IFP application. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914, 1915.
Plaintiff submitted the complaint without the filing fees or an IFP application. Within
thirty days of the date of this order, Plaintiff must either pay the $402.00 in fees or submit the
attached IFP application. If Plaintiff submits the IFP application, it should be labeled with docket
number 21-CV-9553 (LTS). If the Court grants the IFP application, Plaintiff will be permitted to
proceed without prepayment of fees. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1).
No summons shall issue at this time. If Plaintiff complies with this order, the case 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, the 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.
