MARBERRY, Warden, Respondent. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) 2:09-cv-394-WTL-DML ENTRY The issuance of a default judgment in an action for a writ of habeas corpus is rarely warranted. See Bleitner v. Welborn, 15 F.3d 652 (7th Cir. 1994). This case is no exception to the general rule. In addition, the issuance of a default judgment would be inconsistent with the Second Order to Show Cause issued on March 17, 2010. Accordingly, the petitioner's motion for judgment by default (dkt 8) is denied. IT IS SO ORDERED. Date: 03/25/2010 Distribution: Jerry Lee Conway Reg. No. 20469-076 Federal Constitutional Institution P.O.
