UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
MARK ANTHONY FREGIA,
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
No. C 11-3595 SI (pr)
ORDER REOPENING ACTION,
LIFTING STAY AND SETTING
MIKE McDONALD, warden,
This action was stayed and administratively closed so that petitioner, Mark Anthony
Fregia, could exhaust state court remedies as to several of his claims for habeas relief. Fregia
has filed a "request to reopen action [and] lift stay." (Docket # 15.) In the request, he reports
that he has exhausted his state court remedies and is ready to proceed with consideration of his
first amended petition (Docket # 9), as amended by Docket # 10. In the request, Fregia also
clarifies that he does not intend to assert an ineffective assistance of counsel claim.
Upon due consideration, the court GRANTS Fregia's request to reopen the action.
(Docket # 15.) The stay is lifted. The clerk will reopen this action that had been closed
About ten days before filing the request to reopen the action and lift the stay, Fregia had filed
a motion to withdraw the stay and abeyance. In his request to reopen the action and lift the stay,
28 he asks the court to disregard the earlier-filed motion to withdraw the stay and abeyance.
Accordingly, the motion to withdraw the stay and abeyance is DISMISSED. (Docket # 14.)
In order to move this action toward resolution, the court now sets the following briefing
schedule on the cognizable claims in the first amended petition, as amended:
Respondent must file and serve upon petitioner, on or before August 3, 2012, an
answer conforming in all respects to Rule 5 of the Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases,
showing cause why a writ of habeas corpus should not be issued. Respondent must file with the
answer a copy of all portions of the court proceedings that have been previously transcribed and
that are relevant to a determination of the issues presented by the amended petition.
If petitioner wishes to respond to the answer, he must do so by filing a traverse
with the court and serving it on respondent on or before September 7, 2012.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: June 6, 2012
