IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
ADC # 143067
RAY HOBBS, Director, Arkansas
Department of Correction
Case No. 5:13-CV-00040 KGB-JTK
ORDER FOR SUPPLEMENTATION
Petitioner’s October 28, 2013 reply included several exhibits that seem to demonstrate
repeated attempts to appeal the Rule 37 decision. (Doc. No. 18). However, Respondent has not
acknowledged those exhibits or responded to Petitioner’s arguments regarding the statute of
limitations. The Court hereby orders Respondent to file supplemental briefing on the matter.
If possible, this briefing should explain what happened and whether the lack of an appeal
was due to state error. It should also discuss what the implications of state error would be on the
statute of limitations and procedural default. Respondent’s briefing should also discuss whether
Petitioner was required to present his claims to the Arkansas Supreme Court under O'Sullivan v.
Boerckel, 526 U.S. 838 (1999), and Parmley v. Norris, 586 F.3d 1066 (8th Cir. 2009) in order to
fully exhaust his claims on direct review. Finally, Respondent should address the merits of
Petitioner’s claims. Respondent’s briefing shall be submitted by September 1, 2014. Petitioner
shall respond if he desires by September 15, 2014.
SO ORDERED this 11th day of August, 2014.
