Reveles v. Colvin
ORDER GRANTING 1 Motion for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis. Signed by Judge Robert Pitman. (td)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
ACTING COMMISSIONER OF THE
SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION. §
Before the Court is Plaintiff Sergio Reveles’ Motion to File Complaint Without Payment of
Fees (Dkt. No. 1) and attached Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis and Financial Affidavit
in Support (Dkt. No. 1-1). The District Court referred the Motion to the undersigned Magistrate
Judge for a determination pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §636(b) and Rule 1(c) of Appendix C of the Local
Rules of the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, Local Rules for the
Assignment of Duties to United States Magistrate Judges.
After reviewing Reveles’ Application, the Court finds that he is indigent. Accordingly, the
Court HEREBY GRANTS Reveles in forma pauperis status and ORDERS his Complaint be filed
without pre-payment of fees or costs or giving security therefor pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1).
The Court FURTHER ORDERS the Clerk to issue summons in this case and ORDERS the United
States Marshal’s Service to attempt service in this case without pre-payment of a service fee.
Because Revles has been granted leave to proceed in forma pauperis, the Court is required
by standing order to review the Complaint under §1915(e)(2). After reviewing Reveles’ Complaint,
the Court has determined that this case should not be dismissed as frivolous at this time. The Court
cautions Reveles that the Court may make a determination in the future that the action should be
dismissed because the allegation of poverty is untrue or the action is frivolous or malicious pursuant
to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e). Reveles is further advised that, although he has been granted leave to
proceed in forma pauperis, the Court may, in its discretion, impose costs of court against him at the
conclusion of this lawsuit, as in other cases. See Moore v. McDonald, 30 F.3d 616, 621 (5th Cir.
SIGNED this 7 day of August, 2015.
