Hill v. United States

United States District Court, S.D. Illinois

February 27, 2014

GERALD HILL, Plaintiff,
v.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Defendant.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

J. PHIL GILBERT, District Judge.

This matter comes before the Court on plaintiff Gerald Hill's motion to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis (Doc. 36). Hill does not need the Court's permission to proceed on appeal in forma pauperis because the Court determined at the trial level that he was permitted to proceed in forma pauperis. "A party who was permitted to proceed in forma pauperis in the district-court action... may proceed on appeal in forma pauperis without further authorization" unless the district court certifies or a statute provides otherwise. Fed. R. App. P. 24(a)(3). The Court has not and will not certify that Hill should not be allowed to continue as a pauper, and no statute forbids it. Therefore, Hill already has the authorization he needs, and the motion for leave to appeal in forma pauperis (Doc. 36) is DENIED as moot.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
