Reed v. Jackson
ORDER on Remand Requiring Production of Relevant State Court Record Within Fourteen Days. Signed by District Judge Avern Cohn. (JOwe)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
MICHAEL B. REED,
Case Number: 07-10719
HON. AVERN COHN
ORDER ON REMAND
REQUIRING PRODUCTION OF RELEVANT STATE COURT RECORD WITHIN
FOURTEEN (14) DAYS
Petitioner Michael B. Reed filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus under 28
U.S.C. § 2254, presenting several claims, including ineffective assistance of counsel.
The Court ordered Respondent to file an answer to the petition and the relevant state
court documents in accordance with Rule 5 of the Rules Governing Section 2254 cases.
(Doc. 4). Thereafter, Respondent filed Rule 5 materials. (Doc. 8). On March 31, 2010,
the Court denied the petition. (Doc. 10). Petitioner appealed.
The Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit granted a certificate of appealability
solely on the issue of whether Petitioner’s “counsel provided effective assistance of
counsel when counsel failed to challenge [Petitioner’s] warrantless arrest.” Reed v.
Jackson, No. 10-1734 (6th Cir. Mar. 24, 2011). On December 20, 2011, the Sixth Circuit
vacated and remanded Petitioner’s ineffective assistance of counsel claim for further
proceedings, noting that the record did not appear to contain the entire transcript of the
state court evidentiary hearing relating to this claim.1 Reed v. Jackson, No. 10-1734 (6th
Cir. Dec. 20, 2011). The Sixth Circuit stated “[a] remand is necessary so that the district
court may determine, on the basis of the entire state court record, whether the Michigan
courts’ resolution of this issue was an unreasonable application of Supreme Court
precedent.” Id. at 4.
Accordingly, Respondent shall file the entire transcripts of the state court
evidentiary hearing within FOURTEEN (14) DAYS from the date of this order.
