IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
EASTERN DIVISION AT COLUMBUS
MICHAEL R. TURNER,
Case No. 2:07-cv-595
District Judge Timothy S. Black
Magistrate Judge Michael R. Merz
STUART HUDSON, Warden,
This capital habeas corpus case came on for scheduling conference by telephone at 9:00
A.M. on Tuesday, June 18, 2013.
David Stebbins, Sharon Hicks, and William Lazarow
participated on behalf of the Petitioner; Thomas Madden participated on behalf of the Warden.
Turner filed his Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus on June 15, 2007 (Doc. Nos. 17, 19).
After discovery and an evidentiary hearing, the Magistrate Judge filed a Report recommending
dismissal of the Petition on April 22, 2011 (Doc. No. 135).
A Supplemental Report
recommended the same result and a disposition of Petitioner’s Motion for Certificate of
Appealability (Doc. No. 152). On March 8, 2012, Petitioner moved to amend to add Fifteenth
and Sixteenth Grounds for Relief related to Ohio’s lethal injection protocol (Doc. No. 155). On
March 21, 2013, Judge Black overruled the Warden’s Objections to the Magistrate Judge’s Order
granting leave to amend (Doc. No. 204). The next day Judge Black declared the pending
Reports and Recommendations moot in light of the fact that they do not, as required by S. D.
Ohio Crim. R. 57.2, address all of the Grounds for Relief now pled in the case (Doc. No. 205).
With the agreement of the parties, the Court adopts the following schedule:
Amended Return of Writ due
August 5, 2013
Amended Traverse due
September 18, 2013
Warden’s Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings due
October 21, 2013
Petitioner’s Motion for Discovery due
October 21, 2013
The Warden has re-filed the Appendix to Return of Writ so as to obtain PageID numbers
for all pages; all future references to the record made by either party shall include reference to
the relevant PageID number(s).
The Magistrate Judge confirmed for the parties that Judge Black’s mootness order does
not mean the Court intends to relitigate the matters already litigated in the case.
June 18, 2013.
