Longgrear v. Curtin
MEMORANDUM OPINION and ORDER GRANTING EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE APPEAL Signed by District Judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff. (MVer)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
ROLAND ANTHONY LONGGREAR,
Case Number: 07-CV-10455
Honorable Lawrence P. Zatkoff
OPINION AND ORDER GRANTING EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE APPEAL
On December 23, 2009, this Court issued an Opinion and Order denying Petitioner’s petition
for writ of habeas corpus (Docket #18). In a filing dated September 16, 2011, Petitioner asserts that
he learned, for the first time, on September 6, 2011, of the Court’s December 23, 2009 Opinion and
Order denying his petition and requests that the Court allow him additional time to file his appeal
(hereinafter referred to as Petitioner’s “Request for Extension to File Appeal”) (Docket #23). The
Court’s review of the docket reflects that the mailing with respect to the December 23, 2009 Opinion
and Order was returned as undeliverable, without fault of Petitioner, as it was not sent to the thencurrent address for Petitioner. The docket further reflects that Petitioner’s Request for Extension
to File Appeal was filed promptly after Petitioner learned that his petition had been denied.
Accordingly, the Court hereby GRANTS Petitioner’s Request for Extension to File Appeal (Docket
#23) and, to the extent Petitioner still desires to file an appeal, ORDERS Petitioner to file his appeal
within 45 days of the date of this Opinion and Order. The Court’s prior rulings declining to issue
a certificate of appealability and leave to proceed in forma pauperis remain intact.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
s/Lawrence P. Zatkoff
