UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
CHARLES D. VIOX,
Case No. 3:17-cv-00623-MMD-WGC
ISIDRO BACA, et. al,
This action is a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254,
by Charles D. Viox, a Nevada prisoner. The initial habeas petition filed herein (ECF No.
5) failed, in this Court’s view, to state a cognizable claim for federal habeas relief. The
Court granted petitioner leave to file an amended petition (ECF No. 4), which he did on
November 17, 2017 (ECF No. 9).
The Court has reviewed the amended petition pursuant to Habeas Rule 4. The
amended petition will be served upon the respondents, who must respond in the time and
manner described below.
It is therefore ordered that the Clerk of the Court electronically serve the amended
petition (ECF No. 9) and a copy of this order on the respondents.
It is further ordered that the Clerk add Adam Paul Laxalt, Attorney General of the
State of Nevada, as counsel for respondents.
It is further ordered that respondents will have sixty (60) days from the date of entry
of this order to appear in this action, and to answer or otherwise respond to the petition.
It is further ordered that if respondents file an answer, petitioner will have sixty (60)
days from the date on which the answer is served on him to file and serve a reply. If
respondents file a motion to dismiss, petitioner will have sixty (60) days from the date on
which the motion is served on him to file and serve a response to the motion to dismiss,
and respondents will, thereafter, have thirty (30) days to file a reply in support of the
It is further ordered that any additional state court record exhibits filed herein by
either petitioner or respondents must be filed with a separate index of exhibits identifying
the exhibits by number. The CM/ECF attachments that are filed further must be identified
by the number or numbers of the exhibits in the attachment. The hard copy of any
additional state court record exhibits must be forwarded — for this case — to the staff
attorneys in Reno.
DATED THIS 10th day of January 2018.
