IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
December 28, 2012
BRIAN V. COLEMAN AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Chief Magistrate Judge Lisa Pupo Lenihan
Upon review, it appears that Petitioner is currently litigating issues regarding his judgment of sentence in the Superior Court of Pennsylvania. The resolution of such issues bears directly on the timeliness of Petitioner's federal habeas petition pending in this case. As such, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this case shall be administratively closed until the state appellate court has issued its ruling.
IT IS FURHTER ORDRED that counsel for Petitioner shall file a motion to reopen this case within fourteen (14) days of the state court ruling.
