Holmes v. Rivard
ORDER ALLOWING PETITIONER TO PROCEED re 5 Request filed by Quintin Holmes. Signed by District Judge Patrick J. Duggan. (MOre)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
QUINTIN L. HOLMES,
Case No. 2:12-cv-11037
Honorable Patrick J. Duggan
ORDER ALLOWING PETITIONER TO PROCEED WITH THIS ACTION BY
FILING A HABEAS CORPUS PETITION AND SUBMITTING THE FILING FEE
OR AN APPLICATION FOR LEAVE TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
Quintin L. Holmes (“Holmes”) is a Michigan prisoner incarcerated at the Carson
City Correctional Facility in Carson City, Michigan. On March 8, 2012, Holmes initiated
this action by filing a pro se motion to hold his habeas petition in abeyance while he
pursued state remedies. Holmes neither signed his motion, paid the filing fee for a habeas
action, nor applied for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. More significantly, Holmes
did not have a habeas corpus petition pending in this, or any, federal court.
Therefore, in an order dated May 1, 2012, this Court notified Holmes that, if he
intended to seek habeas corpus relief, he must complete and sign a habeas corpus petition
and return the petition for filing with either the $5.00 filing fee or a signed and completed
application to proceed in forma pauperis. The Court then denied without prejudice
Holmes’ motion to hold his “habeas petition” in abeyance and closed this case.
On September 25, 2012, this Court received a letter from Holmes in which he asks
the Court “to lift the stay” and allow him to proceed with a petition for relief under 28
U.S.C. § 2254. There is no stay to lift, because the Court denied Holmes’ motion to hold
his case in abeyance. If Holmes wants to re-open this case, within twenty-eight (28) days
of the date of this Order, he must: (1) file an original habeas corpus petition and two
copies of the petition, and (2) submit either the $5.00 filing fee or an application for leave
to proceed in forma pauperis. Otherwise this action will remain closed.
Dated: May 1, 2013
