(HC) Ortega v. Kings County Jail
ORDER Directing Petitioner to Notify Court Regarding Venue, signed by Magistrate Judge Erica P. Grosjean on 04/27/2021. Thirty-Day Deadline. (Maldonado, C)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 1:21-cv-00665-EPG-HC
ORDER DIRECTING PETITIONER TO
NOTIFY COURT REGARDING VENUE
KINGS COUNTY JAIL,
On April 21, 2021, the Court received a petition for writ of habeas corpus filed by
18 Petitioner Alfredo Ortega. (ECF No. 1). Therein, Petitioner challenges his assignment to the
19 administrative segregation unit of the Kings County Jail. (Id. at 3). Attached to the petition is a
20 copy of the administrative grievance Petitioner filed and the Sheriff’s first, second, and third
21 level responses. (Id. at 7–13).
Petitioner used a HC-001 form approved by the Judicial Council of California and listed
23 the Superior Court of California, County of Kings in Hanford, California as the applicable court.
24 (ECF No. 1 at 1). However, the instant petition was received by this Court—the Fresno Division
25 of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. Although the petition
26 was submitted to this Court, it appears that Petitioner seeks to present his claims to the Kings
27 County Superior Court.
Page numbers refer to the ECF page numbers stamped at the top of the page.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that within THIRTY (30) days from the date
2 of service of this order Petitioner shall either:
1. Notify the Court that he wishes to proceed with his habeas petition in the federal district
2. Voluntarily dismiss the instant action so that Petitioner may file his petition and present
his claims to the Kings County Superior Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
