UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 19, 2013
CURLEY JOHN BROUSSARD, JR.,
MATTHEW CATE, DIRECTOR, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Michael J. Seng United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER DENYING PETITIONER'S MOTION TO SUPPRESS (Doc. 60)
Petitioner is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254.
On July 11, 2012, Petitioner filed a motion to suppress and return evidence under California Penal Code § 1538.5. (ECF No. 60.)
The motion to suppress is DENIED.
Petitioner's motion requests relief from evidentiary rulings made in the state court. That is not the type of relief anticipated on habeas review. The remedy here, if Petitioner makes a sufficient showing, will be to order Petitioner's conditional release. See Harvest v. Castro, 531 F.3d 737, 741-742 (9th Cir. 2008). The Court shall review whether Petitioner constitutional rights were violated at trial, but it will not otherwise address evidentiary findings or rulings made by the trial court.
Accordingly, Petitioner's motion to suppress is DENIED. (ECF No. 60.)
IT IS SO ORDERED.
