Magallanes v. Barnes

United States District Court, Ninth Circuit

August 12, 2013

XAVIER MAGALLANES, Petitioner,
v.
RON BARNES, Respondent.

ORDER

DALE A. DROZD, Magistrate Judge.

Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed an application for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254, together with a request to proceed in forma pauperis and motion for the appointment of counsel.

The application attacks a judgment of conviction issued by the Los Angeles County Superior Court. While both this court and the United States District Court in the district where petitioner was convicted have jurisdiction, see Braden v. 30th Judicial Circuit Court , 410 U.S. 484 (1973), any and all witnesses and evidence necessary for the resolution of petitioner's application are more readily available in Los Angeles County. Id. at 499 n.15; 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d).

Accordingly, in the furtherance of justice, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:

1. This court has not ruled on petitioner's application to proceed in forma pauperis and motion for the appointment of counsel; and

2. This matter is transferred to the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
