Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. The matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to Eastern District of California local rules.

1. The findings and recommendations filed October 20, 2008, and December 24, 2008, are adopted in full;
2. Respondents' motion to dismiss (Doc. 14) is granted;

4. Grounds One, Four, and Five are dismissed as unexhausted;
5. This action shall proceed on Grounds Two, Three, and Six only; and
6. Respondents shall file an answer within 60 days of the date of this order.
