(B) claims an entitlement to redress; and
(C) states the issues that the party intends to present on appeal.
Fed. R. App. P. 24(a)(1). Petitioner has demonstrated his inability to pay but has not otherwise complied with the rule.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner's motion to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal (docket no. 72) is denied without prejudice.
