Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel with an application for a writ of habeas corpus. See 28 U.S.C. § 2254.
An evidentiary hearing was held in this action on April 20, 21, and 23, 2009. On April 24, 2009, this court issued an order requiring petitioner to file a post-hearing brief on or before May 21, 2009; requiring respondent to file a responsive brief on or before June 4, 2009; and permitting petitioner to file a response, if any, to respondent's brief on or before June 18, 2009.
On April 29, 2009, petitioner filed a request for two copies of the evidentiary hearing transcript. Thereafter, the court promptly requested the transcription service prepare and send to the court an expedited transcript. However, the court did not receive a copy of the transcript from the transcription service until May 18, 2009. Therefore, the briefing schedule set forth in the April 24 order should be modified.
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that:
1. Petitioner shall file a brief in this action on or before June 11, 2009;
2. Respondent shall file a responsive brief on or before June 25, 2009;
3. Petitioner shall file a response, if any, to respondent's brief on or before July 9, 2009;
4. In light of those deadlines, between now and July 9, 2009, petitioner shall be given preferred legal user status and access to the law library at CSP-Sacramento, CSP-Corcoran, or any other institution at which he is housed; and
5. The Clerk of the Court shall mail a copy of this order and the transcript of the April 2009 evidentiary hearing to petitioner at the following two addresses: (1) Robert Henry, D32467; California State Prison, Corcoran (3466); P.O. Box 3466; Corcoran, CA 93212-3466, and (2) Robert Henry, D32467; F.S.C. - 131; P.O. Box 290066; Represa, CA 95671.
