MEMORANDUM AND ORDER re 35 Motion to Vacate by Pernell Bradford Jones. Since it does not plainly appear from the face of the motion that is should be summarily dismissed, the United States is ORDERED to file an answer or other pleading within thirty (30) days from the date of this Order. The Court has already appointed counsel to look into whether Petitioner has a claim under Johnson and given FDS leave to supplement Petitioner's filings where appropriate. Accordingly, the request for counsel 33 is DENIED as moot. See Order for details. Signed by District Judge J Ronnie Greer on 6/28/2016. (C/M to Pernell Jones). (LMC)
