Nehemiah Bellamy v. Sean Hanley

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK


April 26, 2012

NEHEMIAH BELLAMY, PLAINTIFF,
v.
SEAN HANLEY, #5740, OFFICER REESE, #6030 AND DETECTIVE GUIDO R. CIRENZA, #1381- SUFFOLK COUNTY POLICE OFFICERS, 1ST PRECINCT, DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Seybert, District Judge:

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Presently pending before the Court is the pro se Complaint brought by incarcerated pro se plaintiff Nehemiah Bellamy ("Plaintiff") pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 ("Section 1983"), accompanied by an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Upon review of the declaration in support of the application to proceed in forma pauperis, the Court determines that the Plaintiff's financial status qualifies him to commence this action without prepayment of the $350.00 filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914(a); 1915(a)(1). Therefore, Plaintiff's request to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED.

Having reviewed the pro se Complaint, the undersigned declines to conclude at this stage that the within action is frivolous or malicious within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 1915. While it may be that Plaintiff is unable to prevail on his claim, the Court's uncertainty does not justify dismissal at this early juncture. McEachin v. McGuinnis, 357 F.3d 197, 200 (2d Cir. 2004). Accordingly, the application to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED and the Court orders service of the Complaint without prepayment of the filing fee.

The Clerk of the Court is directed to forward to the United States Marshal for the Eastern District of New York copies of Plaintiff's Summons, Complaint, and this Order for service upon the Defendant without prepayment of fees. Furthermore, the Clerk is directed to mail a copy of this Order to the Plaintiff.

SO ORDERED.

JOANNA SEYBERT, U.S.D.J.
