UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
ST. LOUIS COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT,
No. 4:16-CV-1738 RWS
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before me on petitioner’s amended petition for writ of habeas corpus
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. The petition is denied.
Petitioner is a pretrial detainee. On August 10, 2016, petitioner was charged with felony
interference with custody. Missouri v. Thompson, No. 16-SL-CR05369-01 (St. Louis County).
Petitioner has been referred to the Metropolitan St. Louis Psychiatric Center for a competency
In her petition, petitioner says she is a “flesh and blood living woman” and a non-citizen
of the United States. She believes she is a “corporate citizen, not subject to the jurisdiction of the
corporation[, i.e., state court,] or any of its representatives.
Petitioner’s argument has no basis in law or fact. E.g., United States v. Hart, 701 F.2d
749, 750 (8th Cir. 1983) (per curiam). As a result, the petition is denied.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner’s motion for leave to proceed in forma
pauperis [ECF No. 5] is GRANTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the petition for writ of habeas corpus is DENIED,
and this action is DISMISSED.
An Order of Dismissal will be filed separately.
Dated this 29th day of November, 2016.
