EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
MICHAEL R FOWLER,
Case No.: 1:18-cv-01516-JLT (HC)
ORDER GRANTING PETITIONER’S MOTION
TO LIFT STAY
On November 1, 2018, Petitioner filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus challenging his
2016 conviction in Tuolumne County Superior Court for assault with a deadly weapon and false
imprisonment. (Doc. 1.) Petitioner raised six claims in his petition and indicated that three of them
were unexhausted. He requested a stay of the proceedings to allow him time to exhaust his state
remedies. The Court granted the stay on November 5, 2018. (Doc. 8.) On September 20, 2019,
Petitioner filed a motion to lift the stay stating that exhaustion was complete and attaching a copy of
the denial issued by the California Supreme Court. (Doc. 14.) It appears the petition is exhausted, so
the Court LIFTS the stay.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
