(HC) Scott v. Covello
ORDER of INTRADISTRICT TRANSFER from Sacramento (2:20-cv-1691 DMC HC) to Fresno (1:20-cv-1297 EPG HC) signed by Magistrate Judge Dennis M. Cota on 9/10/2020. (Yin, K)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
ELMAR K. SCOTT,
Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this petition for a writ of
habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. The petition challenges a conviction issued by the
Stanislaus County Superior Court. Stanislaus County is part of the Fresno division of this court.
See Local Rule 120(b). Because the Sacramento division is not the proper division, this action
will be transferred to the Fresno division.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action is transferred to the
United States District Court for the Eastern District of California sitting in Fresno.
Dated: September 10, 2020
DENNIS M. COTA
UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
