On Application for a Writ of Mandamus Cause No. 1066522-A in the 209th Judicial District Court from Harris County.


Relator has filed a motion for leave to file 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 209th Judicial District Court of Harris County, that more than 35 days have elapsed, and that the application has not yet been forwarded to this Court. In these circumstances, additional facts are needed. The respondent, the District Clerk of Harris County, is ordered to file a response, which may be made by: submitting the record on such habeas corpus application; submitting a copy of a timely filed order which designates issues to be investigated, see McCree v. Hampton, 824 S.W.2d 578 (Tex. Crim. App. 1992); stating that the nature of the claims asserted in the application filed by Relator is such that the claims are not cognizable under TEX. CODE CRIM. PROC. art 11.07, § 3; or stating that Relator has not filed an application for habeas corpus in Harris County. Should the response include an order designating issues, proof of the date the district attorney's office was served with the habeas application shall also be submitted with the response. This application for leave to file a writ of mandamus shall be held in abeyance until the respondent has submitted the appropriate response. Such response shall be submitted within 30 days of the date of this order.
