Filing Fee 
On February 5, 2013, petitioner filed a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus by a in Federal Custody under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 ("Petition"). Concurrent with the Petition, petitioner also filed a request to proceed in forma pauperis. On March 22, 2013 the court issued an Order denying petitioner's request to proceed in forma pauperis and ordering him to pay the $5.00 filing fee pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a) by April 22, 2013. Docket No. 3.
Over two weeks have passed beyond the deadline of April 22, 2013, and petitioner has not paid the filing fee. Nor has petitioner made any other communication with the court. Petitioner is therefore in violation of the court's order. As such, petitioner is ORDERED to show cause by May 28, 2013 as to why the Petition should not be dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute and to comply with the court's order pay the filing fee. See Fed . R. Civ . P. 41(b). Petitioner may discharge this order to show cause by paying the filing fee by May 28, 2013.
