This matter is before the Court on Petitioner’s Motion for Stay of Execution, which was
filed on February 8, 2016. ECF No. 45. This Court previously granted two ninety-day stays of
execution, which terminated on November 13, 2015 and February 22, 2016, respectively. ECF
Nos. 9, 30. Petitioner now asks this Court to grant another ninety-day stay pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 2251(a)(1). Respondents have not filed a response to the motion.
Having carefully reviewed the record and relevant authority, the Court finds that Petitioner
should be granted a stay of execution. The stay shall terminate 90 days after the date of this Order.
The Parties may seek an additional stay of execution as necessary pursuant to § 2251(a)(1) to allow
for full consideration of Petitioner’s imminent habeas petition.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
