IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 4, 2010
EDWARD GOZY, PETITIONER,
D.K. SISTO, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner challenges the 2006 decision by the Governor reversing the decision by the California Board of Parole Hearings (BPH) finding petitioner suitable for parole.
This action had been stayed and the stay was lifted on July 16, 2010, and respondent was ordered to file a response to the petition. On November 2, 2010, respondent filed a motion to dismiss this action as moot, as the Los Angeles County Superior Court granted petitioner's writ that challenged a 2007 denial of parole. Respondent indicates that petitioner was released on parole in 2009.*fn1
Petitioner shall file a response to this motion to dismiss within 21 days of service of this order.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner shall file a response to the motion to dismiss this case as moot within 21 days of service of this order.
