ANDREW SAUL, Commissioner of
THIS MATTER comes before the Court upon the Plaintiff’s Application
to Proceed in District Court without Prepaying Fees or Costs [Doc. 2].

prepay the costs associated with prosecuting the matter. [Doc. 2]. Upon
review of the application, it appears that the Plaintiff lacks the resources with
which to pay the required filing fee. Accordingly, the Court finds that the
application should be granted.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that the Plaintiff’s Application [Doc. 2]
is GRANTED, and the Plaintiff shall be allowed to proceed without
prepayment of the filing fee or giving security therefor.
