Joey W. Jackson v. State of New Jersey Department of Human Services

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY


June 14, 2011

JOEY W. JACKSON, PLAINTIFF,
v.
STATE OF NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES, DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Brown, Chief Judge

NOT FOR PUBLICATION

OPINION AND ORDER

Plaintiff Joey W. Jackson ("Jackson") filed a complaint on May 2, 2011, that opened the above captioned case in this Court. (Doc. No. 1.) It appears that:

1. The Clerk of the Court will not file the complaint unless the person seeking relief pays the entire applicable filing fee in advance or the person applies for and is granted in forma pauperis status pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. See Local Civil R. 5.1(f).

2. The filing fee for commencing a civil action in this court is $350.00. See 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a).

3. Jackson did not prepay $350.00; rather, he submitted an application to proceed in this matter in forma pauperis (IFP application), pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. (IFP Application; Doc. No. 1-2.)

4. Having considered Jackson's IFP application, the Court concludes that Jackson has adequately established that his financial condition renders payment of the $350.00 filing fee a hardship.

Therefore, for the foregoing reasons;

IT IS THIS 14th day of June, 2011, hereby ORDERED that Jackson's IFP application is GRANTED; ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court FILE Jackson's complaint.
