Case No. 5:10-CV-00233 JMM-JTK
ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO STAY
BEFORE THE COURT is Petitioner Montrell Dashone Ventry’s Motion to Stay (Doc.
No. 30). Petitioner has amended his petition to include a claim based on the Supreme Court’s

in light of that decision. Given the circumstances, the Court finds that Petitioner’s motion should
be granted, and any further proceedings in this action are hereby stayed.
Petitioner shall notify the Court when the resentencing process has completed and he no
longer wishes to seek relief from the state. He shall also make any necessary amendments at that
SO ORDERED this 26th day of June, 2013.
