C16-0498-JLR v. 9 10 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, et al., 11 ORDER GRANTING APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS Defendants. 12 13 Because plaintiff does not appear to have funds available to afford the Notice of Appeal 14 filing fee of $505.00, plaintiff financially qualifies for in forma pauperis (IFP) status pursuant to 15 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1). Therefore, plaintiff’s IFP application on appeal (Dkt. 45) is GRANTED. 1 16 The Clerk of the Court is directed to send a copy of this Order to counsel and to the assigned 17 District Judge. 18 DATED this 5th day of November, 2019. 19 A 20 Mary Alice Theiler United States Magistrate Judge 21 22 23 1 Because the Court previously granted plaintiff leave to proceed IFP (Dkt. 30) and IFP status continues on appeal, see Fed. R. App. P. 24(a)(3), this second application should arguably be stricken as moot. However, given the passage of time, the Court also herein finds plaintiff eligible to proceed IFP based on her current financial status. ORDER GRANTING IFP APPLICATION PAGE - 1
