UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
LUIS MANUEL GARCES,
No. 2:17-cv-0592 GGH P
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF
Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed an application for a writ of habeas
corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner has submitted a motion to proceed in forma
pauperis received on March 20, 2017, ECF No. 6, but it has not been acted upon.
The application attacks a conviction issued by the San Diego Superior County 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 San Diego County. Id. at 499 n.15; 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d).
Accordingly, in the furtherance of justice, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter is
transferred to the United States District Court for the Southern District of California.
Dated: March 24, 2017
/s/ Gregory G. Hollows
