Plaintiff is a civil detainee proceeding pro se in a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff is detained pursuant to California Welfare and Institutions Code § 6600 et seq..

In the instant action, Plaintiff has filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis. The Court has reviewed Plaintiff's application and finds that he is unable to afford the costs of this action. Accordingly, his motion to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
