IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 13, 2010
JERRY LEE KEY, PETITIONER,
HECTOR A. RIOS, JR., RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Oliver W. Wanger United States District Judge
ORDER DENYING PETITIONER'S MOTION TO TRANSFER CASE
On September 23, 2010, the instant petition for writ of habeas corpus filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241 was dismissed for failure to state a cognizable claim, and judgment was entered.
On October 1, 2010, Petitioner filed a motion to dismiss the petition and request to transfer the action to the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, at Charleston.
Because the action was properly dismissed by this Court on September 23, 2010, this Court does not have jurisdiction to transfer the petition to another court. Accordingly, Petitioner's motion to transfer the case is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
