IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 31, 2011
NATHAN ANTHONY DORRIS, PETITIONER,
D. ADAMS, WARDEN, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel with an application for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. On January 14, 2011, respondent filed a motion to dismiss petitioner's application for a writ of habeas corpus on statute of limitations grounds. (Dkt. No. 13.) Petitioner has not filed an opposition to the motion. Local Rule 230(l) provides in part: "Failure of the responding party to file written opposition or to file a statement of no opposition may be deemed a waiver of any opposition to the granting of the motion . . . ."
Good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner show cause, within thirty days, why his failure to oppose respondent's January 14, 2011 motion to dismiss should not be deemed a waiver of any opposition to the granting of the motion, and file an opposition to the motion to dismiss. Petitioner is cautioned that failure to respond to the instant order, or to file an opposition to the pending motion to dismiss, will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.
