Truette v. Longley et al
ORDER dismissing respondent Harley G. Lappin. Harley Lappin is not the proper respondent in this civil habeas action. Signed by Honorable David C. Bramlette, III on August 27, 2012. (lda)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
GREGORY DENIS TRUETTE, No. 05884-017
CIVIL ACTION NO. 5:12-cv-101-DCB-RHW
ARCHIE B. LONGLEY, et al.
This matter is before the Court, sua sponte. The proper party respondent in a habeas
petition is the petitioner's custodian. See 28 U.S.C. § 2243. Thus, the proper respondent in this
civil habeas action is Archie B. Longley, Warden of F.C.C.-Yazoo, Yazoo City, Mississippi.
Having reviewed the petition, this Court finds that along with naming Warden Archie B.
Longley, petitioner's custodian, as a respondent, the petitioner has also named Harley Lappin,
Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, as a respondent. Because respondent Lappin is not the
proper respondent in this civil habeas action, it is
ORDERED that the clerk is directed to dismiss respondent Harley Lappin.
