    COLE v. TEXAS , 499 U.S. 1301 (1991)

    499 U.S. 1301 113 L.Ed.2d 206

    Ted Calvin COLE
    TEXAS. No. A-704 (90-7411).

    On application for stay of execution of sentence of death.

    March 18, 1991. Justice SCALIA, Circuit Justice.

    I have before me an application for a stay of execution pending disposition of a petition for writ of certiorari to the Court of Criminal Appeals of Texas. The petitioner seeks direct review of the judgment of the Texas courts affirming his death sentence.

    I will in this case, and in every capital case on direct review, grant a stay of execution pending disposition by this Court of the petition for certiorari. While I will not extend the time for filing a petition beyond an established execution date, see Madden v. Texas, 498 U.S. 1301 , 111 S.Ct. 902, 112 L.Ed.2d 1026 (1991) (SCALIA, J., in chambers), neither will I permit the State's execution date to interfere with the orderly processing of a petition on direct review by this Court.

    It is so ordered.
