HEYWARD v. WARDEN
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER that petitioner's application to proceed in forma pauperis is DENIED; Clerk of the Court shall ADMINISTRATIVELY TERMINATE the petition. Signed by Judge Robert B. Kugler on 9/29/2017. (tf, n.m.)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
MICHAEL C. HEYWARD,
Civ. No. 17-7131 (RBK)
WARDEN FCI FAIRTON,
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Petitioner is a federal prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. He requests to proceed in forma pauperis.
The certification and account statement submitted by Petitioner indicates the greatest
amount on deposit in his prison account in the past six months was $496.02. Under the local
rules, “[i]f the prison account of any petitioner or movant exceeds $200, the petitioner or movant
shall not be considered eligible to proceed in forma pauperis.” Local Civ. R. 81.2(c). Petitioner
is therefore ineligible for in forma pauperis status and must pay the $5.00 filing fee before the
petition can be filed.
Accordingly, IT IS this
29th day of September, 2017,
ORDERED that petitioner’s application to proceed in forma pauperis is DENIED, Local
Civ. R. 81,2(c); and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall ADMINISTRATIVELY TERMINATE
the petition pending submission of the filing fee; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk shall serve this order on petitioner by regular U.S. mail.
