Pimentel v. Pfeiffer
ORDER signed by Magistrate Judge Carolyn K. Delaney on 11/6/2017 ORDERING CASE TRANSFERRED to the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. (Henshaw, R)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. 2:17-cv-2278 CKD P
CHRISTIAN PFEIFFER, Warden,
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 filed a request to
proceed in forma pauperis.
The application attacks a conviction issued by the California Superior Court of Orange
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 Orange 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 Central District of California.
Dated: November 6, 2017
CAROLYN K. DELANEY
