FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS JOHN DOE WARDEN, 15 Respondent. 16 Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding without counsel, seeks a writ of habeas corpus 17 18 pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. On July 3, 2013, respondent moved to dismiss the petition on the ground that the 19 20 petition is untimely and that petitioner failed to exhaust available state judicial remedies. On 21 August 15, 2013, the court informed petitioner of the requirements for filing an opposition to any 22 motion to dismiss. That order gave petitioner 21 days to file an opposition or statement of non- 23 opposition and warned him that failure to do so would result in a recommendation that this action 24 be dismissed. The 21 days have passed and petitioner has not filed an opposition or a statement of no 25 26 opposition nor otherwise responded to the August 15, 2013 order. 27 ///// 28 ///// 1 Dockets.Justia.com 1 2 Accordingly, it is RECOMMENDED that this action be dismissed.
