GILBERT BROWN, Petitioner,
TOM GREEN, DAWSON COUNTY CORRECTIONAL FACILITY, Respondent
Appearing Pro se, Gilbert Brown has filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus. Having reviewed the petition, we deem it appropriate to require a response to the petition.
Good cause having been shown,
IT IS ORDERED that the Department of Corrections and/or Board of Pardons and Parole is granted 30 days from the date of this Order within which to prepare, file and serve a written response to the petition, with documentary exhibits and a legal memorandum. The response shall specifically address the Board's authority to require that Brown must complete SOP I and II prior to parole, and the Board's justification for failure to comply with Admin. R.M. 20.25.402(2)(a)(2012).
The Clerk is directed to provide a copy of this Order to counsel of record and to Gilbert Brown.
