Dean v. Williams
ORDER administratively closing action and placing it on the inactive docket for administrative and statistical purposes. Signed by Magistrate Judge Brian K. Epps on 1/17/17. (cmr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
ANTHONY SCOTT DEAN,
STANLEY WILLIAMS, Warden,
On December 12, 2016, the Court adopted the Report and Recommendation of the
Magistrate Judge as its opinion, denied Respondent’s motion to dismiss, and ordered this action
be stayed and held in abeyance while Petitioner exhausts his state court remedies. (Doc. no. 14.)
The Court further directed Petitioner to commence state proceedings and file a notice of
compliance within thirty days. On January 10, 2017, Petitioner filed his notice of compliance
with the Court’s December 12th order, and informed the Court he has filed a petition for a writ
of habeas corpus in Tattnall County Superior Court. (Doc. no. 15.)
Accordingly, the Court ORDERS the CLERK to administratively close this action and
place it on the inactive docket for administrative and statistical purposes. This action shall be
reopened at such time Petitioner exhausts his state court remedies and moves to lift the stay. The
administrative closing of this case shall have no effect upon the substantive rights of any party to
this case, either at the present time or at such time as the case is reopened.
SO ORDERED this 17th day of January, 2017, at Augusta, Georgia.
