DEATH PENALTY CASE
Order Granting Motion to Lodge of San Quentin Under Seal Exhibits in Support of Petitioner's Second State Habeas Petition (Doc. 43)
On October 3, 2008, Petitioner Michael Corey Slaughter ("Slaughter") filed his amended federal habeas petition. Concurrently, Slaughter filed a second habeas petition with the California Supreme Court, and lodged a copy with this Court. Slaughter seeks to have two volumes (Volume III and Volume IV) of the exhibits filed in support of his second state habeas petition lodged under seal in these proceedings. Slaughter asserts these exhibits contain confidential medical and psychiatric records, and that he has also requested they be filed under seal in the state court proceedings. Respondent Robert L. Ayers, Jr. has not filed an opposition to Slaughter's request.
Slaughter's motion to lodge exhibits under seal is GRANTED. Volumes III and IV of the lodged exhibits in support of Slaughter's Second State Habeas Petition shall be lodged under seal.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
