Pouncy v. Palmer
ORDER on Status Conference. Signed by District Judge Matthew F. Leitman. (HMon)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
OMAR RASHAD POUNCY,
Case No. 13-cv-14695
Hon. Matthew F. Leitman
CARMEN D. PALMER,
ORDER ON STATUS CONFERENCE
On March 28, 2017, the Court held an on-the-record status conference to
discuss next steps in this habeas action. For the reasons discussed on the record,
the Court has determined that the most efficient and appropriate way to proceed is
to await a ruling from the United States Supreme Court on the petition for
certiorari that Petitioner Omar Pouncy (“Pouncy”) intends to file. The Court will
convene a telephonic status conference in mid-September on a date to be set by the
Court to review the status of the cert petition and to discuss if it is appropriate at
that time for the Court to resume consideration of Pouncy’s remaining claims. The
Court further DENIES WITHOUT PREJUDICE Pouncy’s pending motions
related to his waiver-of-counsel claims. (See ECF ## 126, 127, and 129.) The
Court will consider the issues presented in those motions when and if necessary
following a decision from the Supreme Court on Pouncy’s cert petition.
In addition, as the Court directed on the record, the parties shall jointly
prepare and submit to the Court a document that:
1. Identifies all of Pouncy’s remaining claims in this action; and
2. With respect to each remaining claim, answers the following questions and
identifies the following information:
a. At what ECF docket number(s) and ECF page identification
number(s) did Pouncy raise and address the claim in this Court?
b. At what ECF docket number(s) and ECF page identification
number(s) did Respondent address the claim in this Court?
c. Is the claim subject to a procedural default?
d. If Pouncy has argued in this Court that the procedural default should
be excused, at what ECF docket number(s) and ECF page
identification number(s) has Pouncy raised this argument?
e. Did the state courts rule on the merits of the claim?
f. If the state courts ruled on the merits of the claim, at what ECF
docket number(s) and ECF page identification number(s) is the
merits ruling of the state courts?
g. Does the AEDPA standard of review apply to the claim?
h. If Pouncy has argued in this Court that the AEDPA standard of
review does not apply to the claim, at what ECF docket number(s)
and ECF page identification number(s) has Pouncy raised this
3. If Pouncy is unable, through the exercise of reasonable diligence, to
provide ECF page identification numbers, he may instead provide an ECF
docket number and the precise internal page numbers of each document
4. The parties may file this required document up to forty-five days after
Pouncy files his cert petition with the Supreme Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: March 29, 2017
