Petitioner's letter, also dated January 7, 2009, states that he re-filed the petition because his earlier case, C 08-4687 RMW (PR), was dismissed for failing to pay the filing fee. On December 30, 2008, the court received a $5.00 filing fee in Case No. C 08-4687 RMW (PR), attached to a letter from the Correctional Training Facility in Soledad stating that the failure to submit payment of a filing fee was the fault of the prison system's accounting system, and not the failure of petitioner. As such, on January 23, 2009, the court sua sponte reopened petitioner's case in Case No. C 08-4687 RMW (PR), and ordered respondent to show cause why the petition should not be granted.
