On March 5, 2012, the United States Bankruptcy Appellate Panel of the Ninth Circuit transferred appellant Sean Gjerde's application to proceed in forma pauperis ("IFP") to this court "for the limited purpose of ruling on appellants' motion." (Doc. No. 1 at 4.) Appellant has submitted an affidavit, signed under penalty of perjury, which demonstrates that he is unable to prepay fees and costs or give security thereof. (Doc. No. 2.) Accordingly, the request to proceedIFPis granted. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). Because there is nothing further before this court and in light of the limited nature of the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel's transfer order, the Clerk of U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California is directed to close this miscellaneous case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
