UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 3:15-cv-00254-RCJ-VPC
ISIDRO BACA, et al.,
This habeas matter comes before the court on petitioner Fernando Gallegos’
counseled motion for leave to file a third-amended petition (ECF No. 36).
Counsel for Gallegos indicates that respondents correctly point out in their
motion to dismiss that Gallegos made an error in time calculation, and his protective
petition was filed four days late. Id. at 2. Gallegos, therefore, recognizes that the
protective petition is “unavailable as a relation-back anchor.” Id. He seeks leave to file
a third-amended petition in order to eliminate claims for which there is no credible
relation-back argument. Id. Respondents oppose on the basis that they have already
expended the effort and resources to file a motion to dismiss (ECF No. 37). Good
cause appearing, Gallegos’ motion for leave to file a third-amended petition is granted.
The court shall dismiss respondents’ motion to dismiss without prejudice and with leave
renew as respondents deem appropriate.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that petitioner’s motion for leave to file a third-
amended petition (ECF No. 36) is GRANTED. Within thirty (30) days of the date of
this order, petitioner shall file and serve his third-amended petition.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that an answer or other responsive pleading and
any subsequent response thereto by petitioner, shall be filed as set forth in the
scheduling order dated December 18, 2015 (ECF No. 10).
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner’s motion for leave to file exhibit under
seal (ECF No. 27) is GRANTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that respondents’ motion to dismiss (ECF No. 30) is
DENIED without prejudice.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner’s motion for extension of time to file
an opposition to the motion to dismiss (ECF No. 35) is DENIED as moot.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner’s motion for extension of time to file a
second-amended petition (ECF No. 22) is GRANTED nunc pro tunc.
Dated: This 16th day of February, 2017.
DATED: 13 February 2017.
