VERNON C. BROWN JR., PETITIONER,
v.
TIM A. VARGAS,
RESPONDENT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Christina A. Snyder United States District Judge

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

DISMISSING PETITION

Petitioner filed this petition for a writ of habeas corpus on May 9, 2012. This is the sixth habeas petition petitioner has filed in this Court.*fn1 The first petition, which was filed in Case No. CV 03-7528-FMC(AJW), challenged petitioner's 2001 murder conviction in the Los Angeles County Superior Court. That petition was denied on the merits on June 8, 2004. Petitioner subsequently filed numerous other petitions challenging the same conviction, and those petitions were dismissed as successive. See Case Nos. CV 04-4250-R(AJW), CV 11-4338-CAS(AJW), CV 11-4691-CAS(AJW), CV 11-7476-CAS(AJW), CV 11-7997-CAS(AJW).

Absent authorization from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which petitioner has not obtained, petitioner's challenge to his 2001 murder conviction must be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 2244(b)(2)& 2244(b)(3); see Felker v. Turpin, 518 U.S. 651, 656-657 (1996); Greenawalt v. Stewart, 105 F.3d 1268, 1277 (9th Cir.), cert. denied, 519 U.S. 1102 (1997).

It is so ordered.
