The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding through counsel, has filed this application 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 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Local General Order No. 262.

Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The findings and recommendations filed July 8, 2009, are adopted in full; and
2. Petitioner's motion to stay (no. 15) is denied, the unexhausted claims are stricken;
3. Within thirty days of the date of this order, respondent shall file an answer to the exhausted claims; petitioner's reply is due within thirty days thereafter.
