IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 7, 2011
DANIEL TREGLIA, PLAINTIFF,
DIRECTOR OF CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This action is set for trial on June 4, 2012.
On October 4, 2011, plaintiff filed a motion requesting that he be transferred to California State Prison-Sacramento ("CSP-Sac"). Plaintiff is currently housed at Pelican Bay State Prison. Plaintiff alleges that it will be more convenient for him to be housed at CSP-Sac while awaiting the trial.
The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation ("CDCR") determines where plaintiff is housed. The court does not have the authority to order CDCR to transfer plaintiff to CSP-Sac on the grounds sought by plaintiff.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's motion to be transferred to CSP-Sac (Dkt. No. 89) is denied.
