UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
KEITH RUBEN BRIDGEWATER,
No. 2:17-cv-2244 KJN P
PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA,
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 not paid the filing fee or submitted an
application to proceed in forma pauperis.
The application attacks a conviction issued by the Superior Court of Imperial County.
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 Imperial 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: November 9, 2017
