U.S. v. TIDWELL

United States District Court, N.D. Illinois


September 30, 2004.

United States
v.
Tidwell.

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

MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER

Samuel Tidwell, a federal prisoner, filed an appeal from the denial of his motion filed pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2). He has now filed in this court an application to proceed on appeal without prepayment of fees under 28 U.S.C. § 1915.

In ruling on Tidwell's application, this court must determine whether his appeal is taken in good faith. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3). An appeal is taken in good faith if a "reasonable person could suppose that the appeal has some merit." Walker v. O'Brien, 216 F.3d 626, 632 (7th Cir. 2000).

  Because Tidwell's section 3582(c)(2) motion was without merit, the court certifies that the appeal is not taken in good faith. Thus, the court denies Tidwell's application to proceed on appeal without prepayment of fees.
