UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF KENTUCKY
NORTHERN DIVISION at ASHLAND
THOMAS B. SMITH, Warden,
Civil No. 17-080-HRW
*** *** *** ***
The petitioner in this action has filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. [D.E. No. I]. However, petitioner did not pay the
$5.00 filing fee required by 28 U.S.C. § 1914, nor was the petition filed on a form
approved for use by this Court as required by Local Rule 5.2. The Court will
therefore deny the petition without prejudice.
This case is now closed, and the petitioner cannot reopen this case by paying
the $5.00 fee that was previously due. However, the petitioner may file an entirely
new case in compliance with the rules stated above. Appropriate forms may be
obtained from the Clerk of the Court. If the petitioner chooses to file a new case,
he must either (a) pay the $5 filing fee at the time he files his petition or (b) send
with his petition a copy of the Form BP-199 he filed with the prison to request
payment of the filing fee and so advise the Clerk of the Court at the time of filing.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the petition for a writ of habeas corpus
[D.E. No. 1] is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE and this matter is STRICKEN
from the docket of the Court.
