UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA WESTERN DIVISION
March 20, 2009
RODERICK WASHINGTON, PETITIONER,
ALLEN K. SCRIBNER, ET AL., RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Consuelo B. Marshall United States District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
DISMISSING PETITION WITHOUT PREJUDICE
On December 18, 2008, petitioner filed this petition challenging imposition of parole conditions, including registration as a sex offender and the application of "Jessica's Law" precluding him from living within 2000 feet of parks or schools. [Petition at 2]. The petition originally was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, and was transferred to this Court on January 6, 2009. This petition challenges the same parole conditions and contains allegations similar to and overlapping with those made in a separate habeas petition that is currently pending in this Court. [Case No. CV 08-7911-CBM(AJW)].*fn1 Because there is currently another petition pending involving the same petitioner and same subject, the interests of judicial economy and justice are best advanced by requiring that petitioner pursue his claims in a single proceeding. Accordingly, this duplicative case is dismissed without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
