December 18, 2012
EVETTE WILSON, PLAINTIFF,
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION OF LONG ISLAND, CONNIE BRUNO, IN HER CAPACITY AS RENTAL ASSISTANCE DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION, KELLY KLEO, IN HER CAPACITY AS HEARING OFFICER, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Seybert, District Judge:
Plaintiff Evette Wilson commenced this action on November 14, 2012, asserting claims against the Community Development Corporation of Long Island, Connie Bruno, and Kelly Kleo ("Defendants") arising out of the termination of Plaintiff's Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program benefits. Plaintiff has also filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis. The Court has reviewed Plaintiff's application and finds that her financial status qualifies her to commence this action without prepayment of the filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914, 1915(a)(1). The Court has also reviewed the Complaint and declines to conclude at this stage that the within action is frivolous or malicious within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 1915. Accordingly, Plaintiff's 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 a copy of Plaintiff's Summons, Complaint, and this Order for service upon Defendants without prepayment of fees.
