Freeman v. Julious

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


August 13, 2010

TRAVON LEON FREEMAN, PLAINTIFF,
v.
JULIOUS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dennis L. Beck United States Magistrate Judge

ORDER DENYING MOTION REQUESTING FUNDS (DOC. 5)

Plaintiff Travon Leon Freeman ("Plaintiff") is a California state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action. On January 11, 2010, Plaintiff filed a motion requesting a total of $2,500 from the Court. Plaintiff seeks funds to hire a private investigator and paralegal. The expenditure of public funds on behalf of an indigent litigant is proper only when authorized by Congress. Tedder v. Odel, 890 F.2d 210, 211-12 (9th Cir. 1989) (per curiam) (citations omitted). The in forma pauperis statute does not authorize the expenditure of public funds for Plaintiff to hire a private investigator and paralegal. 28 U.S.C. § 1915. Accordingly, Plaintiff's request is DENIED.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
