IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 25, 2013
JAMEL R. STEVENS, PETITIONER,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Carolyn K. Delaney United States Magistrate Judge
On January 28, 2013, petitioner filed two motions for record materials pursuant to the California Rules of Court. (Dkt. Nos. 27, 28.) These state court rules do not apply in this federal action. Moreover, in its order dated December 28, 2011, the court stated that an answer filed in this action "shall be accompanied by all transcripts and other documents relevant to the issues presented in the petition." (Dkt. No. 3, citing Rule 5, Fed. R. Governing § 2254 Cases.) Accordingly, shortly after respondent filed an answer (Dkt. No. 15), he lodged numerous documents with the court concerning the underlying conviction in this action. (Dkt. No. 17.) At this time, the court has no reason to believe that respondent's lodged documents do not include all relevant materials.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT both of petitioner's January 28, 2013 motions for record materials (Dkt. Nos. 27, 28) are denied.
