IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 12, 2008
RAYMOND EDWARD STEELE, PETITIONER,
ROBERT L. AYERS, JR., WARDEN OF SAN QUENTIN STATE PRISON, RESPONDENT.
DEATH PENALTY CASE
Respondent seeks a 30-day extension of time to file a reply brief to petitioner's October 14 Opposition to Respondent's Brief Regarding Procedural Defaults and Teague v. Lane. Respondent states that petitioner has no opposition to the requested extension. The court had intended to hear argument on these procedural default and Teague issues when it heard argument on petitioner's September 23 Motion to Strike, currently set for hearing on December 3, 2008.
Within five days of the filed date of this order, petitioner shall inform the court whether or not he opposes respondent's requested extension of time and, assuming he does not oppose the extension, whether oral argument on the motion to strike and procedural default/Teague issues should be combined, which would require a continuance of the December 3 hearing date.
