MEMORANDUM & ORDER
Pro se petitioner Yamani Ravenell ("Petitioner" or "Ravenell") filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus ("Petition") pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 on February 2, 2004. Respondent William E. Phillips ("Respondent"), through the Kings County District Attorney, responded on April 6, 2005 to the court's Order to Show Cause. By Memorandum & Order dated February 8, 2008, I denied Petitioner's motion for the court to stay his petition and hold it in abeyance until his unexhausted claims have been exhausted in state court. (Docket Entry #13.) To date, the court has still not received the relevant state-court record. The court directs Respondent to provide the state-court record for this case within thirty (30) days of the date of this Order. The Clerk of Court is directed to serve a copy of this Order and an updated docket sheet upon the pro se Petitioner.
