March 7, 2007

MARCEL WAYNE WILLIAMS PETITIONER
v.
LARRY NORRIS, DIRECTOR, ARKANSAS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION RESPONDENT



The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Leon Holmes United States District Judge

THIS IS A CAPITAL CASE

ORDER

The transcript of the voir dire in the underlying trial contains references to juror biographies that are not part of the record. Over the State's objection, citing Holland v. Jackson, 542 U.S. 649, 124 S.Ct. 2736 (2004), this Court has concluded that those juror biographies should be added to the record and that this Court has the authority to request the information pursuant to Rule 7 of the Rules Governing Section 2254 Cases in United States District Courts. Those juror biographies have been provided to the Court by the petitioner. The Court will provide petitioner's letter and the juror biographies to the Clerk, who is ordered to file them under seal.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
