IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 23, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT,
GERARD GALLANT, MOVANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
By Order, filed on May 5, 2009, respondent was directed to file an answer to movant's amended motion to vacate, set aside or correct his sentence, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255. This order was served on movant's address of record and returned by the postal service.*fn1
Respondent, pursuant to the order, has filed a response. Because movant has failed to keep the court apprised of his current address, as required by Local Rule (L.R.) 83-182(f), movant has squandered his opportunity to file an opposition or reply to the response.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that, having failed to notify the court as to his current address, movant has forfeited his opportunity to file a reply or opposition to respondent's response to movant's 28 U.S.C. § 2255 amended motion to vacate, set aside, or correct his sentence, and the matter is now deemed submitted. See L.R. 83-182(f); L.R. 11-110.
