Civil Action No. 15-cv-01549-GPG
EUGENE CARL HATHAWAY,
EDWARD F. REILLY, JR., Chairman of the United States Parole Commission et al.,
J. OLIVER, Warden, A.D.X. Facility,
ORDER TO DISMISS IN PART AND TO DRAW CASE
Applicant, Eugene Carl Hathaway, is in the custody of the Federal Bureau of
Prisons, currently incarcerated at the Florence ADMAX facility in Florence, Colorado.
Mr. Hathaway has filed pro se an Amended Application for a Writ of Habeas Corpus
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 challenging the procedures used during his parole
revocation hearing. (ECF No. 8). He has paid the filing fee in full. (ECF No. 15).
On October 14, 2015, Magistrate Judge Gordon P. Gallagher entered an order
(ECF No. 16) directing Respondents to file a preliminary response limited to addressing
the affirmative defense of exhaustion of administrative remedies if Respondents
intended to raise that defense in this action. On November 4, 2015, Respondents filed
a preliminary response (ECF No. 22). In the Preliminary Response, Respondent Reilly,
Chairman of the United States Parole Commission (“USPC”), notified the Court that he
does not intend to raise the affirmative defense of exhaustion of administrative
remedies. Respondent Oliver, Warden of BOP’s United States Penitentiary1
Administrative Maximum, argued that he was not a proper party to this application
because all of Applicant’s claims appear to be directed at the USPC. However,
Respondent Oliver asserted that if he was considered a proper party, he intended to
raise the affirmative defense of exhaustion of administrative remedies.
On November 17, 2015, Applicant filed a Motion to Terminate Respondent Oliver
from this action. (ECF No. 23). Therefore, Respondent Oliver will be dismissed from
As to the remaining Respondent, after review pursuant to D.C.COLO.LCivR
8.1(b), the court has determined that this case does not appear to be appropriate for
summary dismissal and that the case should be drawn to a judge pursuant to
D.C.COLO.LCivR 8.1(c). Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that Respondent Oliver is dismissed as a party to this action. It is
FURTHER ORDERED that this case shall be drawn to a presiding judge and
when applicable to a magistrate judge. See D.C.COLO.LCivR 40.1(a).
