Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 that was transferred to this Court from the United States District Court for the Central District of California. The matter has been referred to the Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Local Rules 302 and 304. Pending before the Court are the petition and Petitioner's motion for a stay filed on March 17, 2010.
Petitioner's initial petition, challenging the denial of parole by the California Board of Parole Hearings (BPH) on March 1, 2006, was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. (Doc. 1, pet. in no. 09-cv-4873-ABC-AN, 7-8, 18.) Petitioner then filed in that district a second petition challenging the BPH's later denial of his parole on March 25, 2008. (Doc. 13, 9, 10, 32.) When the second petition was construed by the Central District to be an amended petition in the first action, Petitioner first objected and then filed a notice of appeal on January 29, 2010. (Docs. 17, 14.)

The Court takes judicial notice of the docket of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Rivera v. Mendoza-Powers, case no. 10-55336, which reflects that on April 15, 2010, the court dismissed Petitioner's appeal from the Central District's order in Central District case no. 2:09-cv-04873-ABC-AN for lack of jurisdiction because the orders challenged in the appeal were not final or appealable.
