UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
FENTON J. CARSTARPHEN,
CAMDEN COUNTY CORRECITONAL
Civ. No. 14-4596 (RBK)
Petitioner is currently incarcerated at the Camden County Correctional Facility in
Camden, New Jersey. He is proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant
to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. However, petitioner did not pay the $5.00 filing fee nor did he file an
application to proceed in forma pauperis. Additionally, petitioner did not submit his petition on
the proper form. See L.Civ.R. 81.2(a) (“Unless prepared by counsel, petitions to this Court for a
writ of habeas corpus . . . shall be in writing (legibly handwritten in ink or typewritten), signed
by the petitioner or movant, on forms supplied by the Clerk.”). As petitioner has not paid the
filing fee nor submitted a complete application to proceed in forma pauperis and has not
submitted his habeas petition on the proper form, the case will be administratively closed.
Petitioner shall be given an opportunity to reopen this action should he so choose.
Accordingly, IT IS on this 6th day of August, 2014,
ORDERED that the Clerk shall administratively terminate this case for petitioner’s
failure to either pay the requisite filing fee of $5.00 or submit a complete application to proceed
in forma pauperis and for his failure to submit his habeas petition on the proper form; and it is
ORDERED that if petitioner wishes to reopen this action, he shall notify the Court within
thirty (30) days of the date of entry of this Order, in writing; petitioner’s writing shall include
either: (1) a complete in forma pauperis application; or (2) the $5.00 filing fee; petitioner’s
writing shall also include his habeas petition on the proper form supplied by the Clerk; and it is
ORDERED that the Clerk shall serve on petitioner by regular U.S. Mail: (1) a copy of
this Order; (2) a blank form application to proceed in forma pauperis in a habeas corpus case on
petitioner; and (3) a blank habeas petition form—AO 241 (modified): DNJ-Habeas-008 (Rev.012014)
