SISTO, Respondent. / Petitioner, a state prisoner at California State Prison - Solano and proceeding pro se, has filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254, and an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Examination of the in forma pauperis application reveals that petitioner is unable to afford the costs of suit. Accordingly, the application to proceed in forma pauperis will be granted. See 28 U.S.C. 1915(a). Petitioner challenges the February 5, 2008 decision of the California Board of Parole denying him parole. Since petitioner may be entitled to relief if the claimed violation of constitutional rights is proved, respondent will be directed to file a response to petitioner's habeas petition. ///// 1 ORDER STEVEN W.
