Morales v. Beard
ORDER signed by Senior Judge James K. Singleton on 4/10/2018 DIRECTING the Clerk of the Court to TRANSFER 26 Motion for Certificate of Appealability to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. (cc Ninth Circuit). (Fabillaran, J)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
BENITO MORALES, SR,
[Re: Motion at Docket No. 26]
JOE A. LIZARRAGA, Warden, Mule
Creek State Prison,
This Court denied Benito Morales, Sr., a state prisoner proceeding pro se, habeas relief
and a certificate of appealability on March 6, 2018. Docket Nos. 23, 24. Morales timely filed a
notice of appeal with this Court dated April 3, 2018. Docket No. 25. At Docket No. 26, Morales
filed a request for a certificate of appealability. Because this Court has already denied Morales a
certificate of appealability, it appears that he inadvertently filed his motion with this Court rather
than the Court of Appeals.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT the Clerk of Court is directed to transfer
Morales’ Motion for a Certificate of Appealability at Docket No. 26 to the Ninth Circuit Court of
Dated: April 10, 2018.
/s/James K. Singleton, Jr.
