Ramirez v. Tafoya-Lucero, et al.
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE by Magistrate Judge Kevin R. Sweazea. Show Cause Response due by 8/31/2017. (sls)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
IRVIN RODOLFO RAMIREZ,
No. 2:17-cv-579 RJ-KRS
ALISHA TAFOYA-LUCERO and
ATTORNEY GENERAL STATE OF NEW MEXICO,
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
This matter came before the Court following Petitioner’s failure to pay the filing fee for his
28 U.S.C. § 2254 habeas corpus action. By an order entered June 19, 2017, the Court denied
Petitioner’s motion to proceed in forma pauperis and directed him to pay the $5.00 filing fee within
30 days [Doc. 9]. Petitioner did not comply. Instead, he filed a copy of an “Inmate Purchase
Order,” which appears to be a request directed at the prison to debit his inmate account for $5 [Doc.
10]. While the Court appreciates Petitioner’s effort, such filing is insufficient to comply with the
June 19, 2017 order. The Court will give Petitioner another chance to pay $5.00 filing fee within
thirty (30) days of entry of this order or show cause for his failure to do so. Failure to timely
comply will result in the dismissal of this action without further notice.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Petitioner must submit the $5.00 filing fee within
thirty (30) days from entry of this order or show cause for his failure to do so.
