This action is a pro se petition for a writ of habeas corpus filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254, by an inmate. Neither a filing fee nor an application to proceed in forma pauperis was submitted with the petition. When filing a habeas petition in federal court, petitioner must either submit the $5.00 filing fee for habeas petitions or submit an application to proceed in forma pauperis.
IT THEREFORE IS ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED without prejudice to the filing of a new petition in a new action.
IT FURTHER IS ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall send petitioner two copies of an in forma pauperis application form for a prisoner, one copy of the instructions for the same, two copies of a blank 28 U.S.C. § 2254 habeas petition form, one copy of instructions for the same, and one copy of the petition in this action.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner may file a new petition in a new action, but he may not file further documents in this action.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall enter judgment accordingly.
