IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 10, 2012
PETER MANUEL ARTEAGA, II PETITIONER,
STATE OF CALIFORNIA, RESPONDENT.
By order entered March 8, 2012, petitioner's application for writ of habeas corpus was dismissed because he had named the State of California as the respondent instead of a proper respondent, such as the warden of the institution where he is currently incarcerated. At that time petitioner was given thirty days leave to file an amended application for writ of habeas corpus naming the proper respondent. To date, petitioner has failed to comply with the court's March 8, 2012 order by filing an amended habeas petition.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner shall be granted twenty-one (21) days from the date of this order in which to file an amended habeas petition which names the proper respondent. Failure to file an amended habeas petition in accordance in this order will result in an order dismissing this action without prejudice.
