NO. 5:13CV00357 KGB/JTR
RAY HOBBS, Director,
Arkansas Department of Correction
Respondent has filed a Response arguing that Petitioner’s 28 U.S.C. § 2254
habeas claims should be dismissed because they: (1) are not cognizable in a habeas
action; (2) are barred by the one-year statute of limitations; and (3) are procedurally
barred from federal review due to Petitioner’s failure to seek proper review of them
in the state courts. Doc. #11. A Reply to the Response would be helpful to resolution
of this action.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT Petitioner is directed to file, on or
before March 6, 2014, a Reply addressing the arguments for dismissal raised in the
DATED THIS 7th DAY OF February, 2014.
