JAMES MAIN, JR., Petitioner and Appellant,
STATE OF MONTANA, Respondent and Appellee.
James Main, Jr. (Main) has filed a "Petition to Request Clarification" and "Defendant's Discovery Request." Main seeks clarification of a previous order in which the Court stated that Justice Jim Rice is unrelated to former Judge David Rice. Main states it is unclear whether a witness in Main's prosecution, Sarah Rice, is related to Justice Rice. However, she is not. Main also rehashes issues related to the withdrawal of his pro bono counsel. In the other motion, Main seeks discovery during this postconviction appeal.
Main's opening brief has been filed and the noted deficiencies therein have been cured. He is entitled to no further relief as a result of these motions. Therefore,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Petition to Request Clarification and to make clarification and Defendant's Discovery Request are DENIED.
The Clerk is directed to provide a copy hereof to counsel of record and to James Main, Jr.
