|ANN MICHELE CABRERA,||No. 98-4231
(D.C. No. 98-CV-773)
The decision to grant or deny in forma pauperis status under § 1915 lies within the sound discretion of the trial court. See Cross v. General Motors Corp., 721 F.2d 1152, 1157 (8th Cir. 1983), cert. denied, 466 U.S. 980 (1984); Burns v. Veterans Admin., No. 98-5069, 1998 WL 704704, *1 (10th Cir. Oct. 5, 1998) (unpublished disposition).
Upon review of the affidavit originally submitted by Ms. Cabrera in support of her application, as well as her arguments on appeal, we find no abuse of discretion by the district court.
Accordingly, we AFFIRM the district court's denial of Ms. Cabrera's Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees.
The mandate shall issue forthwith.

*.After examining appellant's brief and the appellate record, this panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not materially assist the determination of this appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 34(a)(2) and 10th Cir. R. 34.1(G). The case is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument. This Order and Judgment is not binding precedent, except under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, and collateral estoppel. The court generally disfavors the citation of orders and judgments; nevertheless, an order and judgment may be cited under the terms and conditions of 10th Cir. R. 36.3.
