SENIOR UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
Included within Plaintiff’s objection is a motion for the Court to construe his Petition for Writ of
Mandamus as a motion for summary judgment, but he does not specify on what cause of action he seeks
summary judgment. He states that he realizes a mandamus is not appropriate, but that his petition should
not be construed as a 2254 petition. Because there is nothing before the Court on which summary
judgment could be granted, the motion is DENIED.
