Petitioner was required to file a state exhaustion petition within sixty days, submit periodic status reports thereafter, and file motions to lift the stay and for leave to amend within thirty days after service of a state court order exhausting the new claims. In response to the court's order to show cause filed November 28, 2006, petitioner's counsel has filed a response in which he states that it would be appropriate for the stay to be lifted at this time. Petitioner's counsel indicates that he filed no further petitions after the Sacramento County Superior Court denied the initial exhaustion petition as untimely. Petitioner has not exhausted additional claims and does not seek leave to amend but requests an opportunity to file a traverse. No traverse was filed by petitioner's previous counsel. 1
