Williams v. Rapelje
ORDER denying 12 Petitioner's Motion for Oral Argument. Signed by District Judge Robert H. Cleland. (LWag)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
GLENN TERRANCE WILLIAMS,
Case No. 10-10246
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
