3 Rene Alfaro,
Case No.: 2:21-cv-01265-APG-NJK
Order Dismissing Action
[ECF No. 3]
6 Calvin Johnson,
This is a habeas corpus action under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. I directed petitioner Rene Alfaro
9 to either file an application to proceed in forma pauperis or to pay the filing fee of $5.00.1 Alfaro
10 has done neither within the allotted time. Consequently, I will dismiss the action.
Alfaro has filed two motions for appointment of counsel,2 which I will deny because I am
12 dismissing the action.
Reasonable jurists would not find my determination to be debatable or wrong, and I will
14 not issue a certificate of appealability.
IT THEREFORE IS ORDERED that the motions for appointment of counsel (ECF No. 4,
16 ECF No. 5) are DENIED.
IT FURTHER IS ORDERED that this action is DISMISSED for petitioner's failure to
18 comply with the order (ECF No. 3) of the court. The clerk of the court is directed to enter
19 judgment accordingly and to close this action.
IT FURTHER IS ORDERED that a certificate of appealability will not issue.
ECF No. 3.
ECF No. 4, ECF No. 5.
