IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION
March 15, 2012
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA EX REL. KEVIN MEAKENS #R01024, PETITIONER,
KEITH ANGLIN, WARDEN, ETC., RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Milton I. Shadur Senior United States District Judge
(USCA No. 11-3256)
This Court has just received the March 14, 2012 order from our Court of Appeals remanding this case "for the limited purpose of requesting that the district court provide" the state court decision on which this Court had relied substantially in the issuance of its August 26, 2011 memorandum opinion and order. For that purpose this Court took judicial notice of the unpublished August 17, 2010 order of the Illinois Appellate Court for the First Judicial District in its Case No. 1-08-3097, which had affirmed the judgment of the state trial court dismissing the post-conviction petition of petitioner Kevin Meakens (in that respect see, e.g., Mandarino v. Pollard, 718 F.2d 845, 849 (7th Cir. 1983))--and of course this Court did not itself participate in the preparation of the record on appeal, which Cir. R. 10 specifies is to be handled by the Clerk of this District Court.
But in any event this Court has again obtained a copy of the Illinois Appellate Court's order from that court, and it is attached to this memorandum for delivery to the Court of Appeals.
