UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
MATTHEW DAVID GLEASON,
Case No. 1:17-cv-624
Honorable Paul L. Maloney
LAWRENCE A. STELMA,
ORDER TO FILE AMENDED PETITION
This is a habeas corpus action filed by a state prisoner pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254.
All applications for habeas corpus relief must be submitted on the form petition provided by this
Court. See Rule 2(d), RULES GOVERNING § 2254 CASES; W.D. Mich. LCivR 5.6(a). Petitioner
failed to file his petition on the requisite form. If Petitioner wishes to proceed with his action, he
must carefully fill out the form and submit it to the Court. The Court directs the Clerk to send to
Petitioner a copy of the form petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 for writ of habeas corpus by a person
in state custody. Petitioner shall submit an amended petition by filing his habeas petition on the
requisite form within 28 days from the date of entry of this order. The case number shown above
must appear on the front page of the amended petition. Petitioner must file an original and one
complete copy of the amended petition and any new attachments. Petitioner need not re-submit
supporting materials filed with the original petition. Because the amended petition will take the
place of the original petition, the amended petition must set forth all of the grounds for relief
that Petitioner intends to raise. If Petitioner fails to submit an amended petition in proper form
within the time allowed, the petition may be dismissed without prejudice by the Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: August 4, 2017
