IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
GRADY RENARD WILLIAMS,JR.
CIVIL ACTION NO.: 6:17-cv-150
GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF
After an independent and de novo review of the entire record, the undersigned concurs
with the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation,(doc. 4), to which Petitioner Grady
Renard Williams, Jr.("Williams")failed to file Objections. Instead, seemingly in response to the
Magistrate Judge's recommendation of dismissal for Williams's failure to pay the filing fee or
move to proceed informa pauperis, Williams filed an "International Bill of Exchange" asserting
an "exemption as Principal for full settlement and closure of escrow." (Doc. 5.) This filing is
neither a valid objection to the Report and Recommendation nor a proper response to Williams's
filing fee deficiency. Moreover, Williams has a history of responding in this manner when
courts have noted his failure to pay the requisite filing fee or move to proceed informa pauperis
and subsequently proceeded to dismiss his case. See, e.g.. R. & R., Williams v. Mallard. 4:17cv-90 (S.D. Ga. June 29, 2017), ECF No. 5 (dismissing Williams's complaint for failure to
prosecute where he submitted an "international promissory note" rather than paying the filing fee
or moving in forma pauperis)', R. & R., Williams v. Brvson. 4:16-cv-334 (S.D. Ga. Jan. 17,
2017), ECF No.6(same).
Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate
Judge as the opinion of the Court. The Court DISMISSES without prejudice Williams's
Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus, brought pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241, and DENIES
Williams leave to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal. The Court DIRECTS the Clerk of
Court to enter the appropriate judgment of dismissal and to CLOSE this case,
so ORDERED,this ^7^ day of March,2018.
