IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
STATE OF NEBRASKA,
Petitioner filed a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus (Filing No. 1) and a Motion
for Leave to Proceed in Forma Pauperis (Filing No. 2). Habeas corpus cases attacking
the legality of a person’s confinement require the payment of a $5.00 filing fee. 28

leave to proceed in forma pauperis will be granted and Petitioner is relieved from
paying the filing fee at this time. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that: Petitioner’s Motion for Leave to Proceed
in Forma Pauperis (Filing No. 2) is granted. The next step in this case is for the court
to conduct a preliminary review of the habeas corpus petition in accordance with Rule
4 of the Rules Governing Section 2254 cases. The court will conduct this review in its
normal course of business.
