Judge David S. Cercone
In September 2005 Plaintiff filed a Petition for Habeas Corpus. He failed to pay the five dollar filing fee and he did not file a motion to proceed in forma pauperis ("IFP"). He was sent an Order of Court on September 22, 2005 that he should either include an IFP motion or pay the filing fee, no later than October 13, 2005. Petitioner did nothing. On June 1, 2006 another order was entered directing the Petitioner to show cause why the case should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute. ORDER
Petitioner responded by saying that he had no money but did not attach an IFP motion. Therefore, Petitioner is again ordered to complete and file a motion to proceed in forma pauperis along with a certified account statement from his prison account from the last six months. In forma pauperis forms are enclosed herewith. Petitioner is further ordered to read and comply with the directions on those forms. Petitioner is ordered to complete and file the forms no later than November 7, 2006 or the Court will again enter a show cause order as to why the case should not be dismissed.
