COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, ET AL.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge Conner
Inmate: Michael John Piskanin, Jr.
ID Number: GG-2457
On February 3, 2009, Michael John Piskanin, Jr., an inmate currently confined at the State Correctional Institution, Cresson, Pennsylvania, filed a habeas corpus petition without submitting a filing fee or a motion to proceed in forma pauperis. By Administrative Order dated February 4, 2009, the Petitioner was informed that this case would be dismissed without prejudice unless, within thirty (30) days, he either paid the statutory filing fee of $5.00 or filed a properly completed application to proceed in forma pauperis. Notwithstanding this admonition, thirty (30) days have elapsed and the Petitioner has neither made an appropriate submission nor requested an extension of time in which to do so.
THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED THAT:
1. The petition is dismissed without prejudice.
2. The Clerk of Court shall close this case.
3. The Clerk of Court is directed to terminate all motions (Documents 4 and 6).
