IN RE JASON WHITNEY LAIRD, Relator




ON APPLICATION FOR A WRIT OF MANDAMUS

CAUSE NO. 66,252-A IN THE 27TH DISTRICT COURT

FROM BELL COUNTY


Per curiam.

O R D E R



Relator has filed a motion for leave to file an application for a writ of mandamus pursuant to the original jurisdiction of this Court. In it, he contends that he filed an application for a writ of habeas corpus in the 27th District Court of Bell County, that more than 35 days have elapsed, and that the application has not yet been forwarded to this Court. Relator contends that the district court entered an order designating issues on July 15, 2013.

Respondent, the Judge of the 27th District Court of Bell County, shall file a response with this Court by having the District Clerk submit the record on such habeas corpus application. In the alternative, Respondent may resolve the issues set out in the order designating issues and then have the District Clerk submit the record on such application. In either case, Respondent's answer shall be submitted within 30 days of the date of this order. This application for leave to file a writ of mandamus will be held in abeyance until Respondent has submitted the appropriate response.
