ORDER Upon consideration of the appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit filed by the petitioner in the above entitled action, the court notes that the petitioner failed to pay the appeal fee in the amount of $455.00 or to complete an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED: 1.

If the filing fee is paid by the petitioner or someone other than the petitioner, there must be a written explanation that the money is being submitted as payment of the appeal fee in this case (5:09cv40DCB-MTP) on behalf of the petitioner, Herman Douglas Carter, Jr., #83346-020. 2.

Box 23552, Jackson, Mississippi 39225-3552.
