WILLIAM VAN HOOK,
This is a federal habeas action filed under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner has submitted an
application seeking leave to proceed with this action in forma pauperis. Petitioner’s application
demonstrates that he is unable to afford the $5.00 filing fee. Petitioner’s application to proceed
(Dkt. 5.) is therefore GRANTED. The Clerk is directed to file petitioner’s petition for writ of
habeas corpus without the prepayment of fees. The Clerk is further directed to send a copy of
this Order to petitioner.
DATED this 21st day of June, 2017.
BRIAN A. TSUCHIDA
United States Magistrate Judge
