Civ. No. 15-5497 (RBK)
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
PATRICK NOGAN, et al.,
Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. On August 13, 2015, this Court entered an order which ordered the
respondents to answer the habeas petition within forty-five days. Having not received a response
from the respondents within that time period, this Court issued an order to show cause on
October 6, 2015. That order ordered the respondents to show cause within twenty-one days why
the habeas petition should not be granted.
On October 22, 2015, this Court received respondents’ response to the order to show
cause. Respondents state that they never received this Court’s order to answer that was entered
on August 13, 2015. Furthermore, respondents request an additional sixty days in which to
respond to the habeas petition.
Good cause being found, this Court will grant respondents’ request for an extension of
time to file a response to the habeas petition.
Accordingly, IT IS this 29th day of October, 2015,
ORDERED that respondents’ request for an extension of time to file a response to the
habeas petition (Dkt. No. 7) is granted; and it is further
ORDERED that respondents shall file and serve their response to the habeas petition on
or before December 22, 2015; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk shall serve this Memorandum Order on petitioner by regular
s/Robert B. Kugler
