Barton v. United States Senate
ORDER granting Plaintiff's 1 Motion for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis signed by Hon. James P. Donohue. (PM) cc: Plaintiff via the U.S. Mail
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
HERMAN LEE BARTON JR.,
Case No. C17-1105-JLR
ORDER GRANTING APPLICATION
TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
AND RECOMMENDATION FOR
UNITED STATES SENATE,
Plaintiff, proceeding pro se, has filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis
(“IFP”) in the above-entitled action. Dkt. 1. After careful consideration of the application, the
governing law and the balance of the record, the Court ORDERS as follows:
Because plaintiff does not appear to have funds available to afford the $400.00
filing fee, he financially qualifies for IFP status pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1). Therefore,
plaintiff’s IFP application, Dkt. 1, is GRANTED. However, the undersigned recommends
review under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B).
The Clerk of the Court is directed to send a copy of this Order to plaintiff and to
the Honorable James L. Robart.
DATED this 25th day of July, 2017.
JAMES P. DONOHUE
Chief United States Magistrate Judge
