IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
JOEL DARNELL PATTON,
C.V. RIVERA, Warden,
FCC Forrest City Medium
Mr. Patton, an inmate in the Forrest City Medium, Federal Correctional Institution, has filed
a pro se Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus. (Doc. No. 1.) However, he has not paid the $5.00
filing fee, nor has he filed a proper and complete Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of
Fees and Affidavit. Mr. Patton is, therefore, directed to submit within thirty days from the entry date
of this Order either the $5.00 filing fee or a proper and complete Application with calculation sheet
and certified copy of his trust fund account statement for the preceding six months. Mr. Patton’s
failure to comply with this Order may result in the dismissal of his case without prejudice.1 The
Clerk of the Court shall mail Mr. Patton an Application to Proceed Without Prepayment of Fees and
Petitioner erroneously named C. W. Rivera as the Respondent. Mr. Rivera’s name is actually
C. V. Rivera. Therefore, the Clerk of Court shall change the docket sheet to reflect the correct name.
Local Rule 5.5(c)(2) provides: “It is the duty of any party not represented by counsel to
promptly notify the Clerk and the other parties to the proceedings of any change in his or her address,
to monitor the progress of the case, and to prosecute or defend the action diligently. A party
appearing for himself/herself shall sign his/her pleadings and state his/her address, zip code, and
telephone number. If any communication from the Court to a pro se plaintiff is not responded to
within thirty (30) days, the case may be dismissed without prejudice. Any party proceeding pro se
shall be expected to be familiar with and follow the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.”
SO ORDERED this 5th day of October, 2015.
