SISTO, Warden, Respondent. / Petitioner, a state prisoner, has filed this petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254. On June 11, 2008, the Court issued an Order granting Petitioner's request for a stay of proceedings while he returned to state court to exhaust his administrative remedies. The Court also stated: Nothing further will take place in this action until Petitioner receives a final decision from the highest state court and, within thirty (30) days of doing so, moves to reopen the action, lift the Court's stay and amend the stayed petition to add the newly-exhausted claims. (June 11, 2008 Order at 2.) On May 18, 2010, Petitioner informed the Court that his state proceedings had concluded; however, he did not amend the stayed petition to add the newly-exhausted claims. Therefore, Petitioner must file an amended petition in this Court which incorporates the newly-exhausted claims he intends to raise in federal court, as directed below.
