(Doc. 1). On October 26, 2015, the petition was transferred to this court. (Doc. 3). Because Fussner had neither paid the $5.00 filing fee nor applied to proceed in forma pauperis, the court issued a notice of deficient pleading on October 29, 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.

Accordingly, his petition is due to be DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE for want of prosecution. A separate order will be entered. DONE and ORDERED this December 11, 2015. _________________________________ R. DAVID PROCTOR UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
