Copeland v. Ryan, 16-15849

In a petition for writ of habeas corpus relief, the district court’s orders requiring an Arizona state corrections official to reimburse a petitioner for deposition expenses incurred in his pending habeas proceeding under 28 U.S.C. section 2254 are reversed where a district court cannot order a state to reimburse an indigent habeas petitioner for deposition expenses in a section 2254 habeas proceeding when, as here, the state did not request the deposition.
