IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 21, 2008
RAUDEL REYNOSO RODRIGUEZ, PETITIONER,
SECRETARY OF U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
Petitioner is an individual detained by the Department of Homeland Security and proceeding with an application for writ of habeas corpus. A hearing was held on August 13, 2008 concerning respondents' motion for change of venue. Assistant United States Attorney Audrey Hemesath appeared for respondents. Assistant Federal Defender Carolyn Wiggin appeared for petitioner.
As indicated at the hearing, the court will deny respondents' motion for change of venue as respondent has not shown that venue in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California is more appropriate than here. Also, as indicated at the hearing, the court will order that respondents' answer to petitioner's application for writ of habeas corpus be filed within 75 days.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Respondents' motion for change of venue (#9) is denied; and
2. Respondents' answer to petitioner's application for writ of habeas corpus shall be filed within 75 days of this order.
