IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
April 23, 2013
STEVEN M. JACOB,
ROBERT HOUSTON, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Joseph F. Bataillon United States District Judge
MEMORANDUM ) AND ORDER
This matter is before the court on its own motion. On July 31, 2012, the court ordered Respondent to advise the court of the Nebraska Supreme Court's entry of judgment in Petitioner's pending state-court case, #S-11-439, within seven days of the court's entry of judgment. (Filing No. 118.) To date, Respondent has not advised the court of the status of Petitioner's state-court case, presumably because the Nebraska Supreme Court has not yet entered judgment. However, because this case remains pending and has not been stayed, it is necessary for the parties to update the court as to the status of the state-court proceedings.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that:
1. Petitioner and Respondent are directed to file a status report in this matter within 14 days of the date of this Memorandum and Order. The status report must advise the court of the status of Petitioner's pursuit of state-court remedies.
2. The clerk's office is directed to set a pro se case management deadline in this case using the following text: May 10, 2013, deadline for Petitioner and Respondent to file written status reports regarding state-court action. In addition, the clerk's office is directed to set a pro se case management deadline in this case using the following text: June 1, July 1, August 1, and September 1, 2013: Check on status of Petitioner's pending state-court case.
