UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
HAROLD STEPHEN DYKES,
Case No. 4:12 CV 2299 CDP
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
On November 20, 2013, the Court denied petitioner’s petition for writ of
habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 and a certificate of appealability. .
Petitioner now asks the Court to provide him with free copies of more than 300
pages of documents from this closed case so that he may file a petition for writ of
habeas corpus in state court. Petitioner mistakenly believes that because he was
granted leave to proceed in forma pauperis that he is entitled to free copies of any
documents he wants, including documents that he previously filed with this Court.
He is not. Petitioner may obtain copies of documents from this closed case by
completing the enclosed copy request form and returning it to the Clerk of Court
with the requisite fees. To assist petitioner with his copy request, I will direct the
Clerk of the Court to send petitioner a copy of the docket sheet.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner’s motion for free copies  is
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall provide
petitioner with a copy of the docket sheet from this case and a copy request form.
