proper form for federal habeas relief
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 along with this
election form, and I wish the court to rule
on the grounds asserted in my form § 2254
petition. I realize that the law does not
allow me to file successive or later
petitions unless I receive certification to
do so from the United States Court of for the
Third Circuit; therefore, this petition will
be my one opportunity to seek federal habeas
corpus relief.

({AVIVN%%i) petition for federal habeas relief filed

wish to withdraw my § 2254 petition
without prejudice to file one all—inclusive
petition in the future; that is, one that
raises all the grounds I have for
federal habeas corpus relief. I realize this
all—inclusive petition must be filed within
the one-year period as defined by 28 U.S.C. §
2244(d). gee Swartz v. Meyers,
204 F.3d 417 (3d Cir. 2000).
4. I do not agree with the court’s re-
characterization of my complaint as a § 2254
