United States District Court, E.D. New York
December 18, 2014
ELINE FREDERIQUE, Plaintiff,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant
For Plaintiff: Jonathan R. Klee, Esq., Klee & Woolf, Mineola, NY.
For Defendant: No appearance.
Joanna Seybert, United States District Judge.
On November 26, 2014, plaintiff Eline Frederique (" Plaintiff") filed a Complaint in this Court against the Commissioner of Social Security (" Defendant"), seeking review of the decision of the administrative law judge pursuant to section 205(g) and/or section 1631(c)(3) of the Social Security Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. § § 405(g) and/or 1383(c)(3). Plaintiff's Complaint is accompanied by an application to proceed in forma pauperis.
Upon review of Plaintiff's declaration in support of her application to proceed in forma pauperis, the Court finds that Plaintiff's financial status qualifies her to commence this action without prepayment of the filing fees. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1). Accordingly, Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED and the Court ORDERS service of the Complaint by the United States Marshal Service (" USMS") without prepayment of the filing fee. The Clerk of the Court shall forward the Summons, the Complaint, and this Order to the USMS and the USMS shall serve the Defendant.
The Court certifies pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3) that any appeal from this Order would not be taken in good faith and therefore in forma pauperis status is DENIED for the purpose of any appeal. See Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438, 444-45, 82 S.Ct. 917, 8 L.Ed.2d 21 (1962).
