Joseph Christo Gomez v. Unknown
ORDER signed by Magistrate Judge Edmund F. Brennan on 1/23/17 ORDERING that this case is TRANSFERRED to the Central District of California.(Dillon, M) [Transferred from California Eastern on 1/24/2017.]
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
JOSEPH CHRISTO GOMEZ,
No. 2:17-cv-0103-EFB P
Petitioner is a county inmate without counsel seeking a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to
28 U.S.C. § 2254. He is incarcerated in Los Angeles County and was convicted in Los Angeles
County. Los Angeles County is in an area embraced by the United States District Court for the
Central District of California.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C § 2241(d), courts in both the district of conviction and the district of
confinement have concurrent jurisdiction over applications for habeas corpus filed by state
prisoners. Because petitioner was not convicted in this district, and is not presently confined
here, this court does not have jurisdiction to entertain the application.
Accordingly, in the furtherance of justice, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter is
transferred to the United States District Court for the Central District of California. 28 U.S.C.
§ 2241(d); 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a).
DATED: January 23, 2017.
