UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
January 18, 2011
CITY OF HAMILTON, PLAINTIFF,
SONNY JACKSON JR., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Thompson, U.S.D.J.
MEMORANDUM & ORDER This matter comes before the Court upon Plaintiff, Sonny Jackson Jr.'s renewed application to proceed in forma pauperis, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ' 1915. The Court previously denied Plaintiff's application because he had failed to submit (1) a complete in forma pauperis application as required by 28 U.S.C. ' 1915(a)(1); (2) a signed certification from an authorized officer of the correctional facility where he presently is confined; and (3) a six-month institutional account statement, as prescribed under 28 U.S.C. ' 1915(a)(2). Plaintiff has now provided the Court with all three documents as required, and states that the issues he intends to present are that he was "violently struck by a Hamilton Township Cruiser," "brutally and viciously beaten," and that "Defendants used excessive force[.]" (Affidavit of Poverty & Account Certification at 2) . It appearing that, based on Plaintiff's affidavit of poverty,
Plaintiff is qualified to proceed in forma pauperis, Plaintiff's application will now be granted.
For the reasons stated above, and for good cause shown,
IT IS on this 18th day of January, 2011,
ORDERED that Plaintiff's Application to Proceed in forma pauperis is hereby
ANNE E. THOMPSON, U.S.D.J.
