Blunt v. Bureau of Prisons Community Corrections

July 3, 2007

DAMION BLUNT REG. #30808-077 PETITIONER
v.
BUREAU OF PRISONS COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS RESPONDENTS



ORDER

Petitioner, who is currently incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institute located in Forrest City, Arkansas, has filed a Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2241, and has paid the filing fee. (Docket entry #1.) The Court will therefore order service of the Petition.

The Court also notes that Petitioner has named the "Bureau of Prisons Community Corrections" as the Respondent in this case. Rule 2(a) of the Rules Governing § 2254 Cases provides that the state officer having custody of the applicant shall be named as the respondent. Because Petitioner is legally in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons, the proper Respondent is Linda Sanders, Warden of FCI Forrest City, Arkansas. The Court will direct the Clerk to change the Respondent accordingly.

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT:

1. The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a copy of the habeas Petition (docket entry #1) and this Order on Respondent and the United States Attorney by mail.

2. Respondent shall file a responsive pleading within twenty (20) days of service.

3. The Clerk is directed to change the name of the Respondent to "LINDA SANDERS, Warden, FCI Forrest City, Arkansas."
