IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


April 19, 2011

MILTON OTIS LEWIS, PETITIONER,
v.
ROBERT AYERS, WARDEN RESPONDENT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge

DEATH PENALTY CASE

ORDER

The parties shall, within twenty-one days of the filed date of this order, file concise simultaneous briefs concerning whether Cullen v. Pinholster, --U.S.--, 131 S.Ct. 1388 (2011) invalidates this court's order for an evidentiary hearing, i.e., whether all issues on which an evidentiary hearing was granted were 28 U.S.C. § 2254(d)(1) issues which should be reviewed solely on the factual record set forth in state court either during trial, direct review, or in state habeas proceedings. The parties shall also brief whether respondent is bound by Cullen or whether Cullen only applies to potential grants of a petition as opposed to potential denials. See 28 U.S.C. § 2254(d): "an application for a writ of habeas corpus...shall not be granted with respect to any claim..." If respondent argues that respondent is not bound by Cullen, respondent shall indicate whether respondent desires an evidentiary hearing, and on what issues.*fn1
