UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
Case No. C17-1137-RSM-JPD
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S
APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN
FORMA PAUPERIS AND GRANTING
LEAVE TO AMEND
NANCY A. BERRYHILL, Acting
Commissioner of Social Security,
Plaintiff 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:
Plaintiff’s application to proceed IFP, Dkt. 1, is DENIED. Plaintiff’s
application is deficient because he failed to comply with LCR 3(b) by sufficiently answering
all of the questions on the IFP affidavit approved for use in this district. Specifically, in
response to Question #7, plaintiff lists a home expenses, yet under Question #5, he does not
disclose any ownership interest in real estate. Dkt. 1 at 2. It is therefore unclear whether
plaintiff owns any real estate.
