UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
Civ. No. 15-5497 (RBK)
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Petitioner is a state prisoner currently incarcerated at the East Jersey State Prison in
Rahway, New Jersey. He is proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant
to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. The petition did not include an application to proceed in forma pauperis
nor did it include a prepaid $5.00 filing fee. Thus, this case will be administratively closed.
Petitioner shall be given an opportunity to reopen this action should he so choose.
Accordingly, IT IS this 16th day of July, 2015,
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 it is further
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, including a certified statement of
petitioner’s institutional account as required by Local Civil Rule 81.2(b); or (2) the $5.00 filing
fee; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk shall serve a copy of this Order and a blank form application to
proceed in forma pauperis by a prisoner in a habeas corpus case on petitioner by regular U.S.
