SUPERINTENDENT OF MSP TIMOTHY MORRIS
John Knight has submitted a document that the court construes as a petition for a writ of
habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. The petitioner has not, however, used the court’s standard
form for such petitions. The court uses these forms for the expeditious administration of habeas
corpus petitions. As such, the petitioner must complete and return the enclosed form within 21 days.
Failure to do so may lead to the dismissal of this case without prejudice.
SO ORDERED, this, the 6th day of January, 2021.
