In this case, Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis was granted on May 13, 2008. In light of this rule, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is DISREGARDED AS MOOT; and
2. The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to serve a copy of this order on the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
