IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 31, 2012
LAWRENCE P. CARDOZA, PETITIONER,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Carolyn K. Delaney United States Magistrate Judge
In light of recent Ninth Circuit case law, respondent seeks to withdraw the March 30, 2012 motion to dismiss the petition on the ground that it contains an unexhausted claim. (Dkt. No. 16.) See Cross v. Sisto, __ F.3d __, 2012 WL 1322029 (9th Cir. 2012) (holding that district court did not correctly apply California law in determining that state supreme court's denial of habeas petition with citations to Ex Parte Swain, 34 Cal. 2d 300 (1949) and People v. Duvall, 9 Cal. 4th 464 (1995) was a denial for untimeliness.)
Good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT:
1. Respondent's March 30, 2012 motion to dismiss (Dkt. No. 9) is withdrawn; and
2. Respondent is granted thirty days from the date of service of this order to file an answer to the petition. Petitioner's reply, if any, shall be filed no later than thirty days after service of the answer.
