IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 6, 2012
OUTA SACECHAO, PETITIONER,
R. E. BARNES, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding without counsel, has filed an application for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Although petitioner has filed an in forma pauperis affidavit, he did not submit a completed certificate by an institutional officer showing the amount of money or securities in petitioner's institutional trust accounts, as required by Rule 3(a)(2), Federal Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases. Therefore, petitioner will be provided the opportunity to submit such certificate in support of his request to proceed in forma pauperis, or the appropriate filing fee ($5.00).
In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Petitioner shall submit, within thirty days after service of this order, a completed certificate by an institutional officer showing the amount of money or securities in petitioner's institutional trust accounts; petitioner shall also complete the affidavit portion of the new in forma pauperis application.
2. Petitioner may, alternatively, submit the $5.00 filing fee.
3. Petitioner's failure to comply with this order may result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed without prejudice.
4. The Clerk of the Court is directed to send petitioner a blank Application to Proceed in Forma Pauperis by a Prisoner used in this district.
