IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 6, 2011
YOUNG LOR, PETITIONER,
TOM FELKER, RESPONDENT.
On January 10, 2011, the undersigned issued an order setting a limited evidentiary hearing in this matter. On March 31, 2011, the district judge assigned to this case denied respondent's request for reconsideration of the January 10, 2011 order. Shortly thereafter the United States Supreme Court issued a decision in Cullen v. Pinholster, ___ S. Ct. ___, No. 09-1088, 2011 WL 1225705 (Apr. 4, 2011).
In light of the recent decision in Pinholster, and good cause appearing therefor, this court will sua sponte reconsider its January 10, 2011 order. Before the court issues any further orders with respect to this matter, the parties will be directed to simultaneously file briefing addressing the impact, if any, of Pinholster on petitioner's October 29, 2010 request for an evidentiary hearing.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that, within twenty-one days from the date of this order, the parties shall simultaneously file their briefs addressing the impact of Cullen v. Pinholster, ___ S. Ct. ___, No. 09-1088, 2011 WL 1225705 (Apr. 4, 2011) on petitioner's October 29, 2010 request for an evidentiary hearing.
