IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 14, 2008
DWIGHT PERRY, PETITIONER,
PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, RESPONDENT.
Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed an application for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner has not filed a request to proceed in forma pauperis or paid the required filing fee.
Petitioner is currently confined at California State Prison - Corcoran in Kings County. Petitioner challenges a conviction issued by the Norwalk Superior Court in Los Angeles County. While both the Fresno Division of this court and the United States District Court for the Central District of California have jurisdiction, see Braden v. 30th Judicial Circuit Court, 410 U.S. 484 (1973), any and all witnesses and evidence necessary for the resolution of petitioner's application are more readily available in Los Angeles County. Id. at 499 n.15; 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d).
Accordingly, in the furtherance of justice, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter is transferred to the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
