ENTRY Directing Further Proceedings - Petitioner Michael J. Dennis is instructed to pay the $5.00 associated with this action or demonstrate that he is unable to pay the filing fee by filing a motion to proceed in forma pauperis. The petition in this action is rejected. However, this will not lead to the dismissal of Mr. Dennis' action. Instead, Mr. Dennis will be given an opportunity to file an amended petition that satisfies the habeas rules by setting forth a coherent claim. The Court has attached a blank petition for relief from a conviction or sentence for the petitioner. Mr. Dennis shall have through September 11, 2017, to file an amended petition. The amended petition should contain the case number, 1:17-cv-2522-TWP-DML, and be titled "amended petition for writ of habeas corpus." The clerk is instructed to update the docket to reflect that the parties in this action should be referred to as petitioner and respondent. Copy sent to plaintiff via US Mail. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 8/9/2017. (MAT)
