The pro se petitioner, Maurice Young (“Petitioner”), is a state prisoner, currently housed at
Lieber Institution of the South Carolina Department of Corrections (“SCDC”). Petitioner filed a
petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 challenging his 2006 state conviction.
(ECF No. 1). Petitioner did not pay the filing fee or file an application to proceed without prepayment
of the filing fee. By order dated June 25, 2012, Petitioner was given an opportunity to pay the filing
fee or file an in forma pauperis motion to bring the case into proper form (ECF No. 8). See In Re:
Procedures in Civil Actions Filed by Prisoner Pro Se Litigants, No. 3:07-mc-5014-JFA (D.S.C. Sept.
18, 2007). Petitioner was warned that failure to provide the necessary financial information within
the timetable set in the order would subject the case to dismissal. Petitioner did not respond to the
order and the time for response lapsed on June 25, 2012. Petitioner has failed to prosecute this case,
as well as comply with an order of the court.
This case is dismissed without prejudice pursuant to Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Civil
