THERON JOHNNY MAXTON,
T. H. TOZZA RHODES, Warden, FCI-Florence, and
CHARLES SAMUELS, BOP Director, Washington D.C.,
ORDER DIRECTING PLAINTIFF TO CURE DEFICIENCY
Petitioner, Theron Johnny Maxton, is an inmate at the Federal Correctional
Institution in Florence, Colorado. Mr. Maxton initiated this action by filing pro se in the
United States District Court for the District of South Carolina a petition for a writ of
habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 and a motion seeking leave to proceed in
forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. Mr. Maxton has been granted leave to
proceed in forma pauperis. In an order entered on January 30, 2013, the District of
South Carolina transferred the action to this court.
As part of the court’s review pursuant to D.C.COLO.LCivR 8.2, the court has
determined that Mr. Maxton’s petition is deficient because it is not filed on the proper
form approved for use by prisoners in the District of Colorado. Mr. Maxton will be
directed to cure this deficiency if he wishes to pursue his claims in this court in this
action. Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that Mr. Maxton cure the deficiency identified in this order within
thirty (30) days from the date of this order. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that Mr. Maxton shall obtain the court-approved
Application for a Writ of Habeas Corpus Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 form (with the
assistance of his case manager or the facility’s legal assistant), along with the
applicable instructions, at www.cod.uscourts.gov. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that if Mr. Maxton fails within the time allowed to cure the
deficiency identified in this order, the action will be dismissed without further notice.
DATED January 31, 2013, at Denver, Colorado.
