ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF LORETTA K. SMITH'S MOTION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS AND DIRECTING PLAINTIFF TO FILE NEW IFP APPLICATION
By a motion filed March 8, 2011, Plaintiff Loretta K. Smith sought to proceed in forma pauperis. Plaintiff submitted an incomplete declaration that is not sufficient to make the showing required by 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). First, Plaintiff specified income from "other sources" but failed to disclose the amount of that income or its source. Plaintiff also implied that she is unemployed but did not so state. Finally, Plaintiff disclosed a single expense for electricity but disclosed no other expenses.
Accordingly, the Court DENIES Plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis and directs Plaintiff to submit within thirty days a new application disclosing full information regarding income and expenses.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
