PER CURIAM 10
Gyrone BUCKLEY v. STATE of Arkansas
___ S.W.3d ___
Supreme Court of Arkansas
Opinion delivered May 25, 2006
MOTIONS –MOTION TO STAY BRIEFING SCHEDULEWAS DENIED.– Appellant’s motion to stay
briefing schedule was denied; although appellant had a pending clemency application before
the Governor, there was no certainty of the impact or the outcome of the Governor’s
decision, and appellant previously had been granted two brief extensions.
Motion to Stay Briefing Schedule denied; Motion for Extension of Brief Time granted.
PERCURIAM.AppellantGyroneBuckley, by and through his attorney Patrick J. Benca,
has filed a motion to stay briefing schedule and a motion for extension of brief time if stay
is denied. In his motion to stay briefing schedule, Appellant argues that because there is a
pending clemency application before the Governor, he should be granted the stay. This
argument is without merit, as there is no certainty of the impact or the outcome of the
Governor’s decision. Furthermore, Appellant previously had been granted two brief
extensions, with the final extension set to expire on May 11, 2006. We will not grant a
motion to stay briefing schedule, based upon the possibility of the Governor’s clemency
decision, when Appellant has already been granted a final extension.
Appellant, also, seeks a sevenday extension to file his brief. The motion for
additional time to file is granted and the time is extended seven days from the date of this
order. A copy of this opinion will be forwarded to the Committee on Professional Conduct.
Motion to stay briefing schedule denied; motion for extension of brief time granted.
