Rule 56 Research Question

For PCWriter: Is Rule 56 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure applicable to federal habeas proceedings under 28 USC 2254? A client has a set of facts which where he asserts there is no genuine issue of material fact and therefore he is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. As I recall Habeas relief is civil in nature. Therefore, can the client move for summary judgment under rule 56 of the federal rules?
