IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 12, 2009
JERRY GRANT FRYE, PETITIONER,
ROBERT L. AYERS, JR., WARDEN OF SAN QUENTIN STATE PRISON, RESPONDENT.
DEATH PENALTY CASE
Petitioner has filed a request for clarification or modification of the court's February 6, 2009 order. Petitioner's November 18, 2008 motion to compel lacked sufficient specificity. Rather than simply deny it, the court gave petitioner an opportunity to supplement it. In a January 9, 2009 order, the court asked petitioner to explain how the discovery he sought was justified by the court's 2004 orders, and to set out with specificity what he wants the court to compel CDCR to do. When petitioner's January 16 response was incomplete, the court gave him yet another opportunity to provide the court with information that should have been provided in his November motion. See Feb. 6, 2009 Order. Petitioner now complains that the court has given respondent an opportunity to file a response to petitioner's recent filings. See Jan. 16, 2009 Decl. in Resp. to Order filed Jan. 9; Discovery Correspondence filed Feb. 9, 2009.
Petitioner asks the court instead to order respondent to comply with petitioner's discovery requests. The court will not proceed on petitioner's motion until respondent has had an opportunity to respond to documents filed here for the first time, that should have been filed with petitioner's original motion.
Petitioner's February 10, 2009 Request that the Court Clarify and/or Modify the February 6, 2009 Order is denied.
