In re Allah

| 1 Comment
Here is one from the Cases You Have to Look Up Just for the Name file.

Allah has filed an original habeas corpus petition in the U.S. Supreme Court, In re Allah, No. 09-11321. Allah is appearing pro se and gives his address as Coyote Ridge Correctional Center in the State of Washington.

The first question that strikes me is whether Allah has a "corpus" that one can have custody of. If so, why does He need the assistance of mere mortals to obtain His liberty?  Also, Allah has moved for leave to appear in forma pauperis. Does that mean Allah is indigent? I did not think so.

A colleague of mine has responded to many of Allah's pleadings over the years. I have it on good authority that Allah's given name is Edwin Coston.
