ORDER OF DISMISSAL

On July 30, 2013, Petitioner Ronnie Jackson, Bureau of Prisons registration number

25343-076, an inmate at the Obion County Jail in Union City, Tennessee filed a pro se petition

pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. (Docket Entry 1.) However, Petitioner neglected to pay the fee

required for filing of the habeas petition ($5.00) or submit a properly completed application to

proceed in forma pauperis which includes a certification by the prison trust fund account officer

and a copy of the inmate trust fund account statement for the last six months, as required by 28

U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2). The Court issued an order on August 1, 2013, directing petitioner to pay the

$5.00 habeas filing fee within thirty (30) days. The order further provided that “[f]ailure to

comply in a timely manner will result in dismissal of this action without further notice, pursuant

to Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b), for failure to prosecute (D.E. 2).

On September 3, 2013, Petitioner filed a letter “to inform the Court that the habeas corpus

filed on 7-30-13 case no: 13-cv-2588 was not intended for the district court and was sent to it by

error.” Accordingly, the Court DISMISSES the petition without prejudice, pursuant to

Case 2:13-cv-02588-STA-dkv Document 4 Filed 09/20/13 Page 2 of 2 PageID 28

Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b), for failure to prosecute.

IT IT SO ORDERED this 20 day of September, 2013.
