Martin v. District of Columbia Court of Appeals, , was a Supreme Court opinion denying a petition for motion to proceed "in forma pauperis", as the petitioner had repeatedly abused the process. Specifically, the Court prohibited the petitioner from filing further non-criminal "in forma pauperis" petitions, and that all petitions filed must be compliant with Court rules and must have had the filing fee paid. The dissent, written by Justice Stevens argued that the result violated the "open access" of the Court. This opinion is frequently used to deny petitions and restrict petitioners even today.
Because this ruling extended "in forma pauperis" to civil cases, there was a question of how liberally it could be applied. It was then clarified that "in forma pauperis" may be applied to civil cases only if state controls or intrusions on family relationships are involved. The Supreme Court decided to rule this way, as the family unit is considered so fundamental that its liberty interests should be protected by the Fourteenth Amendment. If these appellate rights were not protected, it was considered to be just as devastating as if a criminal's appellate rights were not considered.
Robin Hood v. United States CV 12-01542 was a 2012 United States District Court for the Northern District of California civil court case. The case was brought by Robin Hood against the United States government for allegedly violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). The case was heard under the plaintiff being "in forma pauperis" but the case was dismissed as frivolous litigation after Hood failed to state a claim for relief. Hood appealed the ruling requesting retention of "in forma pauperis" status but this was denied due to frivolous claims made during the court proceedings.

In 1993, the year of the original case, the poverty rate was at 15.1%, and there were 39.3 million people living under the official poverty level. Although the window this case opened for "in forma pauperis" in civil cases was narrow, it was also highly necessary.

Despite this statement, the Court never elaborated on this evidence or clearly explained why M.L.B.'s parental rights had been dismissed. When M.L.B. went to appeal, she was unable to pay for the record preparation fees of $2,352.36 and was denied. She then went to appeal under "in forma pauperis" but was again denied on the grounds that "in forma pauperis" is demanded only in criminal, not civil, cases. The case was then brought to the United States Supreme Court, where M.L.B. held that an inability to pay court fees should not be decisive of something as precious as parental rights. She used the guidelines set out in the due process and equal protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment to fight her case. The Supreme Court decided in the petitioner's favor and stated that in matters regarding parental rights, a court may not stop a party from appealing the case based on financial means.
When M.L.B. was unable to appeal because of her financial difficulties, she felt that at least "in forma pauperis" should apply, which could not, however, apply to an issue such as parenthood because it was reserved exclusively for criminal cases. The conflict then arose of whether or not a state, consistently with the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution, could condition appeals made by indigent persons if a court decrees termination of parental rights. The court was reluctant to extend "in forma pauperis" to any civil case for fear that it would open the door for too many minor civil cases. When making its decision, the Supreme Court looked at this one situation and considered family a fundamental right of a citizen.
On November 24, Stoller gave notice that he was appealing the judgment to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. The Seventh Circuit noted that "based on prior filings in which he made false representations about his indigency, appellant Leo Stoller is subjected to a filing restriction and is not permitted to proceed "in forma pauperis" in any federal court in this circuit," and, although the order did not apply to criminal cases, ordered that if Stoller were to attempt to proceed "in forma pauperis", he would need to prove eligibility to a United States magistrate judge. In December 2014, Stoller filed a motion to proceed "in forma pauperis", and the Court of Appeals referred the matter to Geraldine Soat Brown, United States Magistrate Judge for the Northern District of Illinois, to make a determination. The court granted the motion on March 5. Oral argument of the appeal was held on December 7, 2015 before circuit judges Joel Flaum, Ann Claire Williams, and Diane Sykes.
"United States ex rel. Gerald Mayo v. Satan and His Staff" was a 1971 case filed before the United States district court for the Western District of Pennsylvania in which Gerald Mayo alleged that "Satan has on numerous occasions caused plaintiff misery and unwarranted threats, against the will of plaintiff, that Satan has placed deliberate obstacles in his path and has caused plaintiff's downfall" and had therefore "deprived him of his constitutional rights". This is prohibited under several sections of the United States Code. Mayo filed "in forma pauperis" - that is, he asserted that he would not be able to afford the costs associated with his lawsuit and that they therefore should be waived. The Court refused the request to proceed "in forma pauperis" because the plaintiff had not included instructions for how the U.S. Marshal could serve process on Satan.
