MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Before the Court is Petitioner's self-styled petition for writ of habeas corpus, in which he challenges his conviction in Clinton County, Illinois, for driving with a revoked license. However, Petitioner's pleadings do not contain sufficient information regarding this conviction to enable Respondent to file an appropriate reply, and the petition is not prepared on the forms provided in this district court that would guide Petitioner in providing the necessary information.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the petition is STRICKEN. Petitioner is GRANTED leave to refile his petition on the appropriate forms in compliance with this Order within THIRTY (30) DAYS of entry of this Order. The Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to provide Petitioner with a sufficient number of the appropriate forms.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that any new petition that is not in strict compliance with this Order shall be STRICKEN.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that upon conclusion of the thirty-day period, should Petitioner fail to refile his petition, this case will be closed for failure to comply with an Order of this Court. FED. R. CIV. P. 41(b); see generally Ladien v. Astrachan, 128 F.3d 1051 (7th Cir. 1997); Johnson v. Kamminga, 34 F.3d 466 (7th Cir. 1994).
