Suit Filed by Pro Se Prisoner When Received by Court

At 241 n. 1: "Where, as here, a prisoner proceeds pro se, the Court deems the prisoner as having filed a court document on the date that he delivered it to prison officials for mailing." Here the Houston v. Lack rule is applied to a petition for habeas corpus. See: Brooks v. Greiner, 49 F.Supp.2d 240 (S.D.N.Y. 1999).
