John Harris v. Commissioner of Social Security

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY


July 12, 2011

JOHN HARRIS, PLAINTIFF,
v.
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Salas, Judge

NOT FOR PUBLICATION

OPINION AND ORDER

Plaintiff John Harris ("Harris") filed a complaint on May 24, 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. Harris 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. 1-1.)

4. Having considered Harris's IFP application, the Court concludes that Harris 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 12th day of July, 2011, hereby ORDERED that Harris's IFP application is GRANTED; ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court FILE Harris's complaint.
