ENTRY ADDRESSING WAIVER OF COLLATERAL REVIEW, GRANTING LEAVE TO SUPPLEMENT ANSWER, AND DIRECTING FURTHER PROCEEDINGS. Petitioner Russell Charles Taylor has asserted two arguments why his sentence should be vacated, set aside, or corrected pursuant to 28 U.S.C. ยง 2255, both of which concern the effectiveness of the counsel he received before pleading guilty. The United States' Response, dkt. 11, to Mr. Taylor's motion does not address the question of whether ineffective assistance by trial counsel entitles Mr. Taylor to relief under Section 2255. The Court grants the United States through June 1, 2018, in which to supplement its answer to Mr. Taylor ยง 2255 motion. Any supplement must respond to Mr. Taylor's substantive arguments that his guilty plea resulted from ineffective assistance based on his trial counsel's failure to challenge the admissibility of critical evidence and to investigate all the charges against Mr. Taylor and inform him of possible defenses. Mr. Taylor shall have 30 days after service of the government's supplement in which to reply. (See Entry.)Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 4/2/2018.(NAD)
