IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 8, 2011
JOSE ANTONIO RODRIGUEZ, PETITIONER,
Petitioner, a state prisoner at Correctional Training Facility, filed a letter addressed to the Clerk of the Court which has been opened as the instant action. No other pleadings have been filed by the petitioner. In the letter, petitioner alleges that he has not been timely released from state prison. He also states that he wants to file two lawsuits, one "to CDCR of Lancaster Prison, Two to LA County Jail." Letter, filed November 28, 2011, at 3.
A civil action is commenced in federal court by filing an appropriate pleading in the proper court. Nothing in petitioner's letter demonstrates that venue would be proper in this court for either a petition for writ of habeas corpus or either of the civil actions mentioned in the letter. Accordingly, this action will be closed.
In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The Clerk of the Court shall send petitioner a form petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254, two form civil rights complaints pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, and three applications to proceed in forma pauperis by a prisoner; and
2. The Clerk of the Court is directed to close this action.
