Although petitioner filed hundreds of pages of documents related 19 to that conviction she has failed to file a petition for a writ of habeas corpus with this court 20 pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. On April 11, 2013, the court ordered petitioner to file a habeas 21 petition within thirty days from the service of the court’s order. (ECF #13.) Petitioner was 22 advised that her failure to comply with the court’s order would result in the dismissal of this 23 action. On May 14, 2013, at petitioner’s request, the court granted her an additional thirty-days 24 to file her petition. (ECF #17.) The time provided for petitioner to file her habeas petition in this 25 action has passed and petitioner had not filed a habeas petition or otherwise responded to the 26 court’s order. 1 1 2 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED that this action be dismissed for petitioner’s failure to comply with the court’s order. 3 These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District 4 Judge assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). Within fourteen 5 after being served with these findings and recommendations, petitioner may file written 6 objections with the court. The document should be captioned “Objections to Magistrate Judge's 7 Findings and Recommendations.” Any response to the objections shall be filed and served 8 within fourteen days after service of the objections. Petitioner is advised that failure to file 9 objections within the specified time may waive the right to appeal the District Court's order. 10 Martinez v. Ylst, 951 F.2d 1153 (9th Cir. 1991). 11 In any objections she elects to file, petitioner shall address whether a certificate of 12 appealability should issue in the event she files an appeal of the judgment in this case. See Rule 13 11, Federal Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases (the district court must issue or deny a 14 certificate of appealability when it enters a final order adverse to the applicant). 15 DATED: July 1, 2013. 16 17 18 DAD:4 purd1830.156 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 2
