IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
ARLYN P. ILDEFONSO,
BRIAN GAGE, Warden,
AND ORDER ON MOTION FOR
LEAVE TO USE PREVIOUSLY
FILED ATTACHMENTS AND
EXHIBITS AS PART OF
PETITION FOR WRIT OF HABEAS
UNDER 18 U.S.C. § 2254
This matter is before me on Petitioner Arlyn Ildefonso’s (“Ildefonso”) “Motion
for Leave to Use Previously Filed Attachments and Exhibits as Part of Petitioner[’]s
Amended Petition for Writ of Habeas Under 18 U.S.C. § 2254.” (Filing No. 7.) On
September 9, 2013, I ordered Ildefonso “to file an amended petition for writ of habeas
corpus that clearly sets forth his claims together with the facts in support of those
claims.” (Filing No. 6 at CM/ECF p. 1 (emphasis in original).) I said:
I cannot clearly identify Ildefonso’s claims for relief because they are
strewn throughout his 101 pages of attachments in no particular order.
For each of his 81 claims for relief, Ildefonso lists only the “supporting
facts” within the petition, and then directs me to various pages within
the attachments for identification of the actual claims. . . . Apparently,
Ildefonso expects me to sort through 101 pages of attachments in order
to match up 81 claims with their corresponding facts. I will not
undertake such a task. Moreover, in order to ensure a just resolution of
this matter, Ildefonso should clearly identify his claims and their
In Ildefonso’s recently-filed motion, Ildefonso seeks leave to incorporate these
101 pages of attachments into his amended petition for writ of habeas corpus. (Filing
No. 7 at CM/ECF pp. 1-2.) In support of his request, Ildefonso argues that the cost
of reprinting the attachments would put a “severe strain on [his] resources.” (Id. at
CM/ECF p. 2.)
Upon careful consideration, I find that Ildefonso may refer to the attachments
filed with his original petition for writ of habeas corpus (Filing No. 1, Attachments
1 and 2). However, as set forth in my previous Memorandum and Order, Ildefonso’s
amended petition for writ of habeas corpus must clearly set forth his claims together
with the facts in support of those claims. Ildefonso may not direct me to various
pages within these attachments for describing his actual claims. In other words, I will
not sort through 101 pages of attachments trying to match up 81 claims with their
corresponding facts. Specific words should describe each claim.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that: Ildefonso’s “Motion for Leave to Use
Previously Filed Attachments and Exhibits as Part of Petitioner[’]s Amended Petition
for Writ of Habeas Under 28 U.S.C. § 2254” (Filing No. 7) is granted, but only to the
extent it is consistent with this memorandum and order.
Dated October 16, 2013.
