UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS PEORIA DIVISION
March 20, 2013
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
JEREMIAH WRIGHT, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Joe Billy McDADE United States Senior District Judge
Thursday, 21 March, 2013 10:07:29 AM Clerk, U.S. District Court, ILCD
ORDER & OPINION
This matter is before the Court on Defendant's Application to Proceed in forma pauperis on appeal (Doc. 55). Defendant failed to fill out the application in its entirety, and omitted the issues he intends to present on appeal. (Doc. 55 at 1).
Under Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 24(a)(1)(C), such a motion must "state the issues that the party intends to present on appeal." Because Defendant's Application does not include that information, the Court cannot determine whether the appeal is taken in good faith. Thus, Defendant's Application to Proceed in forma pauperis is TAKEN UNDER ADVISEMENT. Defendant SHALL submit an amended application complying with Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 24 within fourteen days of the date of this order. Failure to do so will result in the motion being denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
