UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
June 22, 2010
SARAH JULIANA STRAEHLE, PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Seybert, District Judge
Pending before the Court is the application to proceed in forma pauperis of plaintiff Sarah Juliana Straehle ("Plaintiff"). Plaintiff filed a Complaint pursuant to Section 205(g) of the Social Security Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. § 405(g), seeking review of the final decision of the Defendant Commissioner of Social Security denying Plaintiff's claim for Supplemental Security Income under Title XVI of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 401 et seq.
Upon review of the declaration accompanying Plaintiff's application, I find that Plaintiff's financial status qualifies her to commence this action without prepayment of the filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1). Accordingly, Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis is granted. The United States Marshal Service is directed to serve the Complaint upon the Defendant without prepayment of the filing fee.
Joanna Seybert, U.S.D.J.
