Richardson v. Jennings

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


July 12, 2007

CURTIS RICHARDSON, JR., INMATE #N-60371 PLAINTIFF,
v.
LT. CHAD JENNINGS, DEFENDANT.

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

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal. (Doc. 103.) While the Court finds that Plaintiff is indigent, the Court is unable to certify that this appeal is taken in good faith. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3).

Plaintiff asserts in his affidavit in support of his motion that the issues that he wishes to pursue on appeal are "prejudice/impartial jurors, ineffective assistance of counsel, trial court errors and abuse of discretion by judge." (Doc. 103, Affidavit, p. 1.) Plaintiff does not provide any examples or arguments in support of these bald assertions. On the basis of these unsupported assertions alone, the Court is unconvinced that Plaintiff undertakes this appeal in good faith. Therefore,

Plaintiff's motion to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal (Doc. 103) is DENIED.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

Signed this 12th day of July, 2007.
