IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NORTH DAKOTA SOUTHEASTERN DIVISION
August 24, 2010
RAY GARCIA, PETITIONER,
WARDON REDMANN, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Karen K. Klein United States Magistrate Judge
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Petitioner Ray Garcia ("Garcia"), an inmate at the James River Correctional Center, submitted for filing a habeas petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 and an application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. The certificate of inmate account and assets from the correctional institution shows that as of August 13, 2010 Garcia had $17.00 in his Inmate Account. In the six months preceding August 13, 2010, Garcia's average balance in the inmate account was $35.02 and the average of the monthly deposits to the Inmate Account was $94.64. Garcia stated he receives $12.00 per month in allowance or wages from the correctional institution.
It appears Garcia has sufficient funds to pay the $5.00 filing fee for this action. It is therefore RECOMMENDED that Garcia's application to proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. #2) BE DENIED. If Garcia wishes to pursue his petition for habeas relief, he may pay the $5.00 filing fee.
