Canales v. Quarterman Doc. 49 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS CORPUS CHRISTI DIVISION EDUARDO R. CANALES, TDCJ-CID NO. 1276027, v. NATHANIEL QUARTERMAN, DIRECTOR, TDCJ-CID. C.A. NO. C-06-266 MEMORANDUM AND RECOMMENDATION TO DENY PETITIONER'S MOTION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS AND FOR A WRIT OF CERTIORARI Petitioner is an inmate in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Criminal Institutions Division, and is currently incarcerated at the Ferguson Unit in Midway, Texas. Proceeding pro se, petitioner filed this habeas corpus petition pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254 on June 27, 2006. (D.E. 1). On December 12, 2006, respondent filed a motion for summary judgment. (D.E. 25). On February 20, 2007, this Court granted respondent's motion for summary judgment and denied a certificate of appealability before entering final judgment. (D.E. 30, 31). On February 19, 2008, the Fifth Circuit also declined to grant a certificate of appealability. (D.E. 47). Pending is petitioner's motion to proceed in forma pauperis before the Supreme Court of the United States, and for a writ of certiorari by that Court. (D.E. 48). This Court cannot grant certiorari, or leave to proceed in forma pauperis, on behalf of the Supreme Court. Petitioner must file his petition according to the procedures outlined in the Supreme Court Rules. See Sup. Ct. R. 29 (all documents presented to the Court shall be filed with the Clerk of the Supreme Court); Sup. Ct. R. 39, 2 (procedures for requesting leave to proceed in forma pauperis); see also Sup. Ct. R. 12-14 (addressing how and when to file a petition for writ of certiorari). Documents to be filed in the Supreme Court should be addressed to: Clerk, Supreme Court of the United States, Washington, D.C. 20543. Accordingly, it is respectfully recommended that petitioner's motion to proceed in forma pauperis, and for a writ of certiorari, (D.E. 48), be DENIED without prejudice. Respectfully submitted this 2nd day of April 2008. ____________________________________ BRIAN L.
