Today’s opinions are all, or almost all, unsubstantiated indocumentados, with one fraud thrown in. One order, undesignated though it may be, does point out one answer to a question I discussed in my blogpost “Refund Conundrums,” 12/2/16: “When does a petitioner get back the sixty buck filing fee?”

Here’s Laverne G. Eubanks & Cedric R. Eubanks, Docket No. 22159-19, filed 1/15/20. Laverne & Cedric petitioned and paid the filing fee. Three (count ‘em, three) days later, Laverne & Cedric file an Application for Waiver of Filing Fee.

Ch J Maurice B (“Mighty Mo”) Foley provides a simple rule.

“Because the filing fee was paid when the petition was filed, we will deny petitioners’ request to waive the filing fee.” Order, at p. 1.

If you pay first, you’re stuck.
