White v. USA
ORDER that petitioner file his Reply to the government's 6 Response not later than May 8, 2015. Signed by District Judge Max O. Cogburn, Jr on 4/2/2015. (Pro se litigant served by US Mail.)(tmg)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
DOCKET NO. 3:15-cv-00014-MOC
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
THIS MATTER is before the court on consideration of the government’s Response (#6)
to petitioner’s Motion for Vacate, Set Aside, or Correct Sentence (#1). In accordance with Rule
5, Federal Rules Governing Section 2255 Proceedings, the court will afford petitioner an
opportunity to file a Reply to such Response as the government therein seeks dismissal.
Finally, the court has considered petitioner’s request for an evidentiary hearing (and
necessarily counsel) in light of the claims raised in his petition and the government’s response.
The court finds that petitioner ably expressed his legal contentions, that the reasons the government
seeks dismissal are straight forward, and that petitioner has, according to the PSR, significant
educational achievement. The request for an evidentiary hearing and counsel is, therefore, denied.
The court will, however, keep such issues open throughout these collateral proceedings.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that petitioner file his Reply to the government’s
Response not later than May 8, 2015.
Signed: April 2, 2015
