Sanders v. Folk
ORDER EXTENDING DEADLINE granting 12 Motion for Extension of Time to Amend. (Illston, Susan) (Filed on 7/27/2018)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
RICKY RENE SANDERS,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 18-cv-01558-SI
ORDER EXTENDING DEADLINE
Re: Dkt. No. 12
Petitioner’s request for an extension of the deadline to file his amended petition for writ of
habeas corpus is GRANTED. Docket No. 12. Petitioner must file his amended petition no later
than September 7, 2018. Failure to file the amended petition by that date will result in the
dismissal of all deficient claims. Petitioner is reminded that he must pay the $5.00 filing fee by
August 10, 2018, or the action may be dismissed.
In his request for an extension of the deadline, petitioner mentioned the limited access to a
typewriter and law library. As to the typewriter, petitioner is now informed that the court accepts
handwritten filings, as long as they are legible, as well as typed documents from pro se litigants.
As to the limited law library access, the court notes that petitioner may need to do some legal
research but the vast majority of the deficiencies identified in the petition for writ of habeas corpus
were inadequate descriptions of the facts in support of various claims. A petitioner does not need
to be in the law library to write a statement of facts.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
