IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA GARY RUSSELL BOUSAMRA, Petitioner, vs. D.K. SISTO, et al., Respondents. / Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with an application for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner has paid the filing fee. Since petitioner may be entitled to the requested relief if the claimed violation of constitutional rights is proved, respondents will be served with the petition, but shall not file a response at the present time. In light of the relief that petitioner is seeking1, the court has determined that the interests of justice require appointment of counsel. See 18 U.S.C. § 3006A(a)(2)(B); see also Weygandt v. Look, 718 F.2d 952, 954 (9th Cir. 1983). ORDER No. CIV S-07-0019 FCD CMK P

Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 1. The Federal Defender is appointed to represent petitioner; 2. The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a copy of petitioner's habeas corpus application and a copy of this order on David M. Porter, Assistant Federal Defender. 3. Petitioner's counsel shall contact the Clerk's Office to make arrangements for copies of other documents in the file. 4. Within forty-five days of this order, the parties shall file a joint scheduling statement which addresses the timing and order of the following matters: a. The number of days petitioner's counsel estimates it will take to file either: 1. A statement indicating petitioner will stand on the existing petition, and supplemental memorandum of points and authorities, if any; 2. An amended petition which will proceed on exhausted claims only; or 3. A statement which identifies both exhausted and unexhausted claims, and any intention to pursue unexhausted claims, after which the court will recommend that the proceedings be held in abeyance while petitioner exhausts any new claims in state court.2 b. Discovery and investigations; c. Anticipated motions; d. The need for and timing of an evidentiary hearing; e. Enumeration and resolution of unexhausted claims; and f. Possible future amendments to the pleadings. Counsel are reminded of the importance of timely filing a joint scheduling statement. Failure to do so may result in sanctions. If not all claims in the original petition are exhausted, an amended "exhausted claims only" petition must be filed along with the statement indicating petitioner's intent to pursue unexhausted claims. Of course, if no claims in the original petition have been exhausted, the case must be dismissed as opposed to stayed. 2
