My brother has a Habeas Corpus 2241 and Motion 2255 Pending in District Court. How long does the Court take to decide after the Traverse was filed and the Respondent Filed the answer to Traverse already. Its been 2 months and we are still waiting for the judge to decide. Also, while waiting for the judge to decide, can a Bivens 1331 be filed in the meantime and with same jurisdiction as the Habeas and will it help to rush the judge if filed? Can he file the Bivens although he is still incarcerated and if he wins will he have the right for any compensation?
