IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 16, 2009
JOHN RICHARDSON, PETITIONER,
CAPTAIN SHEEHAN, RESPONDENT.
Petitioner, confined in a county correctional center, proceeds without counsel and seeks a writ of habeas corpus. See 28 U.S.C. § 2254. This case is before the undersigned pursuant to petitioner's consent. See 28 U.S.C. § 636; see also E.D. Cal. Local Rules, Appx. A, at (k)(1)-(2).
On June 2, 2009, the court dismissed petitioner's third amended petition for failure to specify the grounds for relief in his petition and for failing to file a petition that is complete in itself without reference to any prior petitions. See Rule 2(c), Rules Governing § 2254 Cases; E.D. Cal. L.R. 15-220. The court gave petitioner 30 days to file a fourth amended petition correcting those deficiencies and warned petitioner that failure to file an amended petition would result in dismissal.
On July 13, 2009, petitioner filed 74 pages with the court, consisting of filings from the Sacramento County Superior Court, the Stanislaus County Superior Court, this district (including this action as well as another action, No. 08-cv-3027 GGH), and copies of several cases decided by the California Supreme Court. However, the 30-day period has expired and petitioner has not filed an amended petition or otherwise complied with the court's order.
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that this action is dismissed. See Rules 2(c), 4, Rules Governing § 2254 Cases.
