Okolie v. City of Seattle et al
ORDER granting Plaintiff's 1 Motion for Leave to Proceed in forma pauperis signed by Judge Ricardo S Martinez.(TH) (cc: Plaintiff via U.S. mail)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
CASE NO. C17-1531-RSM
THE CITY OF SEATTLE, et al.,
ORDER RE: APPLICATION TO
PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
Plaintiff submitted an application to proceed in forma pauperis (IFP). (Dkt. 1.) 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.1 The Clerk of the Court is directed to send a copy of this Order to plaintiff
and to the assigned District Judge.
DATED this 20th day of October, 2017.
Mary Alice Theiler
United States Magistrate Judge
It should be noted that plaintiff previously voluntarily dismissed this lawsuit, brought, at that time,
against two of the defendants named here. Okolie v. City of Seattle, C15-1258-RAJ (Dkts. 37 & 46). The
Court conditioned the dismissal on allowing any discovery to be used in any subsequent action brought by
plaintiff against the same defendants. Id. (Dkt. 46 at 3). Also, if plaintiff brought a similar action against
defendants, the Court’s orders would remain in effect in the subsequent matter. Id.
