Pro Se Habeas Cases

Print Guideline

These matters are decided without oral argument. Notices, Orders, and Reports & Recommendations are served by U.S. mail on parties who are not represented by counsel or are not e-filers. The Court may consider appointing counsel under the Criminal Justice Act in appropriate cases. Pro se litigants are expected to adhere to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The Court does not give legal advice to either side and expects that pleadings will be in appropriate form. Letters to the Court are not pleadings and may be returned to the sender, if deemed inappropriate.
