Harvey v. State of Texas
ORDER DISMISSING CASE. Signed by Judge Robert Pitman. (aej)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
SAN ANTONIO DIVISION
Case No. SA-15-CA-750-RP
Before the Court is Petitioner’s Response to the Court’s Show Cause Order, which the Court
construes as a Motion to Withdraw the Petition. Petitioner requests that the Court disregard his
habeas corpus petition. Under Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a)(2),1 an action may be dismissed at the plaintiff’s
instance upon order of the court and upon such terms and conditions as the court deems proper. The
Court has considered the motion, and it is granted.
It is therefore ORDERED that the motion to withdraw petition (Document 4), filed by
Petitioner on September 11, 2015, is GRANTED.
Rule 11 of the Federal Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases provides that:
The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, to the extent that they are not
inconsistent with these rules, may be applied, when appropriate, to
petitions filed under these rules.
It is further ORDERED that Petitioner’s Petition for habeas corpus relief (Document 1) is
DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE, and this case is CLOSED.
SIGNED on September 15, 2015.
ROBERT L. PITMAN
