2018-02-212NOTICE OF RELATED CASE. Case related to Case No. 12-cv-01872-RC. (zrdj) (Entered: 03/01/2018)
2018-02-213ORDER of USCA that the motion for leave to file an addendum to the petition be granted and that the motions to appoint counsel be denied. USCA Case Number 17-05039. FURTHER ORDERED that the petition for writ of mandamus be granted as toPinson, the only petitioner remaining in the case. The district court is directed to file the complaint (which is attached to the petition for writ of mandamus) as to Pinson. See ln re Williams, No. 10-5122 (D.C. Cir. Jan. 4, 2012). The request for apportionment of fees is moot because Pinson is the only remaining petitioner. At this time, the court takes no position on the merits of the complaint. Because this court has granted Pinson's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis based on the Prison Litigation Reform Act's imminent danger exception, 28 U.S.C. § 1915(9), the district court shall allow Pinson to proceed in forma pauperis in the newly filed case.(zrdj) (Entered: 03/01/2018)
