UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 29, 2010
DANIEL ANDREW DAVIS, PETITIONER,
M. MARTEL, WARDEN RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dennis L. Beck United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER DIRECTING PETITIONER TO SUBMIT SIGNATURE UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY
Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254.
Petitioner filed the instant petition for writ of habeas corpus on July 13, 2010.
Upon review of Petitioner's petition, the Court discovered that the Petition does not contain an original signature under penalty of perjury. Local Rule 131, subdivision (b) requires a document submitted to the Court for filing to include an original signature. In addition, Rule 2 of the Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases requires a petition for writ of habeas corpus to "be signed under penalty of perjury by the petitioner." Rule 2(c), Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases. In light of the difficulty in having Petitioner submit an entire new habeas corpus petition, Petitioner is ORDERED to submit a document stating that he submitted the instant Petition to the Court and signed it under penalty of perjury. The document should contain an original signature also made under penalty of perjury. Petitioner is GRANTED twenty (20) days from the date of service of this order to comply with the Court's directive. Petitioner is forewarned that failure to comply with a Court order will result in a recommendation for dismissal of the petition pursuant to Local Rule 110.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
