UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 30, 2009
JEFFREY SCOTT SARGENT, PETITIONER,
I.D. CLAY, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable N. Randy Smith Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge
Petitioner Sargent is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Sargent challenges the decision by the California Board of Parole Hearings (BPH) finding him unsuitable for parole. After Sargent's petition, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granted rehearing en banc in Hayward v. Marshall, 512 F.3d 536 (9th Cir. 2008), reh'g en banc granted, 527 F.3d 797 (9th Cir. 2008), which may directly impact Sargent's petition.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that, within twenty days of the date of this order, the parties shall show cause why this action should not be administratively stayed pending the Ninth Circuit's resolution in Hayward.
