IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 25, 2011
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gary S. Austin United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS ON APPEAL
and DIRECTING CLERK TO SERVE THE COURT OF APPEALS
Petitioner is a prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254.
On April 18, 2011, judgment was entered dismissing the petition for writ of habeas corpus. On March 31, 2011, petitioner filed a notice of appeal, a motion for certificate of appealability. On April 18, 2011, petitioner filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Examination of petitioner's application to proceed in forma pauperis reveals that petitioner is unable to afford the costs of an appeal. Accordingly, the application to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal is GRANTED. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915. The Clerk is directed to serve a copy of this order on the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
