UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 4, 2013
WILLIAM RAY JONES, SR.,
LEHIGH SOUTHWEST CEMENT COMPANY, INC.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Jennifer L. Thurston United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS (Doc. 20)
Plaintiff William Jones, Sr. ("Plaintiff") filed an "application to proceed in District Court without prepaying fees or costs." (Doc. 20). The Court "may authorize the commencement, prosecution or defense of any suit, action or proceeding, civil or criminal . . . without prepayment of fees..." 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). A party seeking to proceed in forma pauperis must submit "an affidavit that . . . the person is unable to pay such fees or give security therefor." 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1). Because Plaintiff's application satisfies the requirements of 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a), it is GRANTED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
