MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
ROBERT BUECHELE, et al.,
This matter has come before the Court on Petitioner's letter request to reopen the instant
· .matter. (Docket Entry 3).
1. Petitioner filed this habeas petition on February 20, 2015, and neither prepaid the $5.00
filing fee for a habeas petition as required by Local Civil Rule 54.3(a), nor submitted a complete
application to proceed in forma pauperis ("IFP").
2. By Order dated March 20, 2015, this Court administratively terminated the petition for
failure to pay the filing fee or submit a complete IFP application. (Docket Entry 2). The Court
ordered the Clerk to send Petitioner a blank IFP application.
3. On May 11, 2015, the Court received a letter from Petitioner requesting to reopen his
petition and stating he did not know why the Court had terminated his petition. (Docket Entry 3 ).
4. The IFP application included with Petitioner's initial submission was an application for
proceeding in a civil rights matter, not a habeas matter. (Docket Entry 1). As the proceedings have
different standards for proceeding IFP, Petitioner must submit the IFP application for a habeas
proceeding or pay the $5.00 filing fee.
