The Court dismissed her complaint with prejudice and without leave 16 to amend on the defendant’s motion. [Dkt. #13]. 17 An appeal may not be taken in forma pauperis if the trial court certifies in writing that it 18 is not taken in good faith. 28 U.S.C. §1915(a)(3); see also Hooker v. American Airlines, 302 F.3d 19 1091, 1092 (9th Cir. 2002) (revocation of forma pauperis status is appropriate where district 20 court finds the appeal to be frivolous). The Court must determine whether Grabois’s appeal is 21 frivolous or malicious, or fails to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. See 28 U.S.C. 22 §1915(e)(2)(B)(i)&(ii). 23 24 ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO APPEAL IFP 1 1 While the Court did determine that Grabois failed to state a plausible claim, it cannot 2 certify that her appeal of that decision is taken in bad faith.
