IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 29, 2010
RICHARD J. LEWIS, PETITIONER,
M. VEAL, WARDEN, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
On February 16, 2010, this court directed plaintiff to show cause why his petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 should not be discharged because plaintiff was paroled on November 5, 2009. Dkt. No. 31. Plaintiff has timely responded to the court's order and clarified that this action remains viable because plaintiff could still benefit by a favorable ruling that may result in the shortening of his parole. Dkt. No. 32. The court agrees. See U.S. Const., Art. III, § 2; Spencer v. Kemna, 523 U.S. 1, 7 (1998).
Accordingly, good cause having been shown, the order to show cause is HEREBY DISCHARGED. This court notes that this case is fully briefed and will be decided in due course.
