LAMAR WHATLEY, PETITIONER,
MIKE EVANS, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. On August 10, 2009, the undersigned ordered that respondents file a response and that petitioner file an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Petitioner filed a application to proceed in forma pauperis on August 18, 2009
Examination of the in forma pauperis application reveals that petitioner is unable to afford the costs of suit. Accordingly, the application to proceed in forma pauperis will be granted. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a).
In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted.
