WALTER WALKER, PETITIONER,
W.J. SULLIVAN, ET.AL., RESPONDENTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sandra M. Snyder United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER DIRECTING PETITIONER TO SUBMIT COPY OF ORIGINAL PETITION TO COURT
Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254.
Petitioner filed the instant petition for writ of habeas corpus on January 31, 2007 in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. On February 14, 2007, the action was transferred to this Court; however, for some unknown reason, a case number was not assigned and the Court does not a copy of the petition, despite a transmittal of documents from the Central District. Upon receiving knowledge of the error, the instant action was opened and assigned case number 1:09-cv-00042-SMS (HC); however, the Court still does not have a copy of the original petition filed in the Central District. Although of no fault to Petitioner, this Court cannot proceed with this action until a copy of the petition is re-filed in this Court.
Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Within thirty (30) days from the date of service of this order, Petitioner shall filed a copy of the petition filed in the Central District;
2. The Clerk of Court is directed to send Petitioner a blank § 2254 form petition; and
3. Failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation that the instant action be dismissed pursuant to Local Rule 11-110.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
