MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Petitioner is proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28
U.S.C. § 2241. Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(a) requires every pleading, written motion

the habeas petition. Petitioner shall be given thirty days in which to submit a signed habeas
petition. Furthermore, petitioner is encouraged to refile his signed habeas petition on the form
provided to him by the Clerk.
Accordingly, IT IS this 6th day of July, 2017,
ORDERED that this matter is administratively terminated as petitioner did not sign his
habeas petition; and it is further
ORDERED that petitioner may move to reopen this case by filing a complete signed
habeas petition within thirty (30) days of the date of this order; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk shall serve this order and an accompanying blank form petition
for writ of habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2241 on petitioner by regular U.S. mail.
