MOTION FOR APPOINTMENT OF
Petitioner, a prisoner of the State of California proceeding pro se, has filed a
habeas corpus petition pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 challenging the constitutionality of
his state court conviction. Good cause appearing, Petitioner’s motion for an extension of
time to file a second amended petition (dkt. 29) is GRANTED, to and including January
21, 2016. Respondent’s motion for an extension of time to file an answer or responsive
pleading (dkt. 30) is also GRANTED, to and including February 22, 2016. Petitioner’s
renewed motion for appointment of counsel (dkt. 28) is DENIED because Petitioner is
capable of presenting his claims on his own, and the circumstances of this case do not
necessitate such appointment at this time.
All provisions of the order to show cause dated July 30, 2015, remain in effect to
the extent they are not changed by this order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
