As soon as the court's calendar permits, petitioner's complaint will be screened pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1915(e)(2) to determine whether the case must be dismissed either because the co m p lain t is frivolous or malicious, fails to state a claim on which relief may be granted or seeks monetary relief against a defendant who is immune from such relief. Petitioner will be notified promptly when such a decision has been made.
