GRIMES, 10 Case No. 3:17-cv-00523-MMD-VPC Petitioner, ORDER v. 11 STATE OF NEVADA, 12 Respondent. 13 14 Petitioner Jerome L. Grimes has submitted a purported pro se petition for writ of 15 habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (ECF No. 1-1). The petition is not on the court- 16 required form, and the application to proceed in forma pauperis is incomplete. 17 Accordingly, this matter has not been properly commenced. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2) and 18 Local Rule LSR1-2. The present action, therefore, will be dismissed without prejudice. 19 Moreover, petitioner’s filing is largely indecipherable, sets forth no discernible 20 factual allegations cognizable in federal habeas and no discernible, plausible factual 21 allegations that would state a claim for which relief may be granted in any event. He states 22 that he is currently an “illegal” patient at Springfield Hospital Center in Sykesville, MD. He 23 states that the relief he seeks is “to be free from tainting, defamation, fraudulent, coloring 24 and prejudicial public 911 broadcasted information” (ECF No. 1-1 at 1). Petitioner’s 25 submission is delusional and frivolous. 26 It is therefore ordered that the Clerk detach and file the petition (ECF No. 1-1). 27 It is further ordered that petitioner’s application to proceed in forma pauperis (ECF 28 No. 1) is denied. 1 2 3 It is further ordered this action is dismissed as improperly commenced and frivolous. It is further ordered that the Clerk enter judgment accordingly and close this case. 4 DATED THIS 6th day of November 2017. 5 6 7 MIRANDA M.
