ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE AND TO ANSWER WITHIN THREE DAYS
After preliminary consideration of the application for writ of habeas corpus filed
under 28 U.S.C. § 2254, the court finds that an answer from the respondents is
necessary. Title 28 U.S.C. § 2243 provides that an answer to a petition for a writ of
habeas corpus “shall be returned within three days unless for good cause additional
time, not exceeding twenty days, is allowed.” Absent a showing of good cause, an
answer to the application shall be due within three days of the date of this order. Thus,
the respondents’ answer shall be due on or before Thursday, April 12, 2012.1
See FED. R. CIV. P. 6 (d).
THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED as follows:
1. That the respondents shall file an answer to the Application [#1] by April 12,
2. That any answer of a respondent shall conform to the requirements of Rule
5(b), (c), and (d) of the Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases in the United States
District Courts; and
3. That the petitioner may submit a reply to an answer of a respondent within 11
days of its filing.
Dated April 6, 2012, at Denver, Colorado.
BY THE COURT:
See FED. R. CIV. P. 6 (a)(4), which defines “Last Day,” and (a)(5), which defines “Next Day.”
