UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION GLENN TERRANCE WILLIAMS, Petitioner, v. Case No. 10-10246 LLOYD RAPELJE, Respondent. / ORDER DENYING PETITIONER’S MOTION FOR ORAL ARGUMENT This is a habeas case filed under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner Glenn Terrance Williams challenges his convictions for two counts of armed robbery. Petitioner’s Motion for Oral Argument is currently before the court. A federal district court can grant oral argument in a habeas case where it would assist in resolving the matters raised in the habeas petition. See e.g., Haskell v. Berghuis, 695 F. Supp. 2d 574, 584 (E.D. Mich. 2010). The court finds, at this time, that oral argument is not necessary. If, at a later date, the court determines that oral argument would be beneficial, the court will schedule oral argument without necessity of the filing of an additional motion. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Petitioner’s “Motion for Oral Argument” (Dkt. # 12) is DENIED. S/Robert H. Cleland ROBERT H. CLELAND UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE Dated: June 18, 2014 I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was mailed to counsel of record on this date, June 18, 2014, by electronic and/or ordinary mail.
