MEMORANDUM OPINION Signed by Judge William M Acker, Jr on 12/1/15. (SAC )
2015 Dec-01 PM 02:25
U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
ERIC L. GRIFFIN,
) Case No. 1:15-cv-01691-WMA-JHE
WARDEN WILLIAM TAYLOR,
On September 25, 2015, Petitioner Eric L. Griffin (“Griffin”) filed a petition for a writ of
habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241, seeking to attack his federal sentence under
Johnson v. United States, 135 S. Ct. 2551 (2015). (Doc. 1). Because he did not pay the $5.00
filing fee or apply to proceed in forma pauperis, the Court issued a notice of deficient pleading
on September 30, 2015, informing him that his failure to do one or the other within thirty days of
the date of the notice would result in dismissal of his case for want of prosecution.
(citing FED. R. C IV. P. 41(b)). That deadline has passed, and Griffin has not paid the filing fee or
filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis.
Accordingly, Griffin’s petition is due to be
DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE for want of prosecution.
A separate order will be
DONE this 1st day of December, 2015.
WILLIAM M. ACKER, JR.
