This is a civil action filed by a federal prisoner. Therefore, in the event that a limitations
issue arises, Plaintiff shall have the benefit of the holding in Houston v. Lack, 487 U.S. 266 (1988)
(prisoner’s pleading was filed at the moment of delivery to prison authorities for forwarding to
district court). Under Local Civil Rule 73.02(B)(2) of the United States District Court for the
District of South Carolina, pretrial proceedings in this action have been referred to the assigned
United States Magistrate Judge. By order dated March 9, 2012, Petitioner was given a specific time
frame in which to bring this case into proper form. Petitioner has refused to comply with the court’s
order, and this case is now subject to summary dismissal.
PAYMENT OF THE FILING FEE:
Petitioner has paid the full filing fee (Receipt No. SCX200009314).
TO THE CLERK OF COURT:
The Clerk of Court is directed to add to the docket the Warden of Miami Federal
Correctional Institution as a respondent because a prisoner’s custodian is the proper respondent in
a habeas corpus action. Rumsfeld v. Padilla, 542 U.S. 426, 434-35 (2004). The Clerk of Court shall
not serve the § 2241 Petition upon Respondent because the Petition is subject to dismissal.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
