MAXINE M. CHESNEY United States District Judge
On April 9, 2010, the court received a letter from petitioner in which he requests additional IFP applications for his more than forty co-petitioners. The petition, however, has not been signed by any co-petitioner, and petitioner may not proceed on behalf of other 28 prisoners. Consequently, the request is denied.
