Ritchie v. State

December 8, 2006

BARRY WINFRED RITCHIE, PLAINTIFF,
v.
STATE OF TENNESSEE, RESPONDENT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Edgar

MEMORANDUM

Petitioner Barry Winfred Ritchie ("Ritchie") filed a document entitled "Petition for Removal to Federal Court" [Court File No. 1]. The Court concluded the document was not a valid removal petition but that Ritchie was attempting to file a habeas petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Thus, the Court directed Ritchie to file an in forma pauperis application and a § 2254 petition within thirty days from the date of the October 24, 2006 Order.

Instead, Ritchie has filed a notice of appeal and an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Ritchie was notified that failure to comply with the Court's order would result in the case being dismissed for want of prosecution.

Therefore, this action will be DISMISSED sua sponte, for failure to comply with the orders of this Court. FED. R. CIV. P. 41(b); Jourdan v. Jabe, 951 F.2d 108 (6th Cir. 1991).

An appropriate judgment will enter.
