Milligan v. Ahlin

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


August 19, 2009

TIMOTHY L. MILLIGAN, PETITIONER,
v.
PAM AHLIN, RESPONDENT.

ORDER

Petitioner, who is under an order of civil commitment, proceeds without counsel in this action in which he seeks a writ of habeas corpus. See 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Currently pending is petitioner's motion to correct the court's misunderstanding of his status.

In previous orders, the court has referred to the petitioner as a state prisoner. Petitioner has notified the court that he is not serving a sentence for a criminal conviction. Rather, he is under an order of civil commitment. Petitioner's notice to the court is well-taken.

Accordingly, it is ORDERED that henceforth, the court shall acknowledge petitioner not as a state prisoner, but rather as a person under an order of civil commitment.
