IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 10, 2011
LARRY W. KIRK,
S.M. SALINAS, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge
Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Pursuant to the written consent of all parties, this case is before the undersigned as the presiding judge for all purposes, including entry of final judgment. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(c). Pending before the court is petitioner's third amended petition (Doc. 30).
Following the dismissal of plaintiff's second amended petition as a mixed petition, petitioner was provided an opportunity to file a third amended petition, which he has now done. Respondent, however, has not filed a response to the third amended petition.
To the extent respondent was waiting for a court ordered deadline to file a response, the court now orders that a response to the third amended petition (Doc. 30) shall be filed within 30 days of the date of this order.*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
