CAREY, et al., Respondents. / Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has submitted a document that appears to be a state petition for writ of habeas corpus filed, or intended for filing, in the California Supreme Court. Petitioner has not paid the required filing fee or filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914(a) & 1915(a). Petitioner's August 18, 2005 filing consists of a state form, inserted attachments, and hundreds of pages of exhibits. The petition is captioned for filing in the "Supreme Court for the State of California" and is dated June 18, 2005. Petitioner states that "this appeal is being made to the highest State Supreme Court."
