Kennedy v. Commissioner of Social Security Administration
ORDER re 3 MOTION for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis. Plaintiff's attorney is directed to submit a motion with Plaintiff's original signature within fourteen days (14) from the date this order is issued. Signed by Magistrate Judge Paige J Gossett on 1/15/2015. (cwil, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA
Danny R. Kennedy,
Commissioner of Social Security
C/A No. 0:14-4628-JMC-PJG
This civil action seeks review of a decision of the Commissioner of Social Security denying
Plaintiff’s application for Social Security Disability benefits and Supplemental Security Income
Disability benefits. (ECF No. 1 at 1.) Under Local Civil Rule 73.02(B)(2) DSC, pretrial proceedings
in this action have been referred to the assigned United States Magistrate Judge.
Plaintiff’s attorney submitted an Application to Proceed in District Court Without Prepaying
Fees or Costs (Form AO240), which has been docketed as a motion for leave to proceed in forma
pauperis. (ECF No. 3.) However, the motion does not contain Plaintiff’s original signature and is
instead signed electronically. Because Plaintiff is not a “filing user” under the Electronic Case Filing
system, he must sign the motion in the traditional filing method. See Electronic Case Filing Policies
and Procedures DSC §§ 1.3, 1.11 (May 12, 2006). Therefore, Plaintiff’s attorney is directed to
submit a motion with Plaintiff’s original signature within fourteen days (14) from the date this order
IT IS SO ORDERED.
