Love v. Daniels
MINUTE ORDER denying without prejudice 16 Applicant's Motion for Emergency Injunction Preventing Transfer Pursuant to Rule 23(a), construed as a request for preliminary injunction pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(a), by Magistrate Judge Michael E. Hegarty on 4/23/2012. (mehcd)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 12-cv-00306-WJM-MEH
CHARLES A. DANIELS,
Entered by Michael E. Hegarty, United States Magistrate Judge, on April 23, 2012.
Before the Court is the Applicant’s Motion for Emergency Injunction Preventing Transfer
Pursuant to Rule 23(a) [filed April 17, 2012; docket #16]. The motion fails to meet the requirements
of Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(b) and D.C. Colo. LCivR 65.1B and 65.1C; thus, the Court will construe the
motion as a request for preliminary injunction pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(a).
The Court will deny the motion without prejudice for the following reasons. First, the
Applicant states as the basis for the motion compliance with Fed. R. App. P. 23(a), which provides
in pertinent part, “[p]ending review of a decision in a habeas corpus proceeding commenced before
a court, justice or judge of the United States for the release of a prisoner, the person having custody
of the prisoner must not transfer custody to another ... ” (emphasis added). Appellate Rule 23(a)
does not govern proceedings in this Court; even if it did, however, it would not apply to the present
circumstances where there has been no decision in this matter and the Applicant does not seek
release through his § 2241 application.
Second, the Applicant fails to articulate how his request to enjoin a transfer from his current
facility relates in any way to the request for relief sought in this case, as would be necessary for a
determination as to whether Applicant can show a substantial likelihood of success on the merits.
See Schrier v. Univ. of Colo., 427 F.3d 1253, 1258 (10th Cir. 2005). According to his Amended
Application, the Applicant seeks an order expunging charges from his disciplinary record, correcting
his institutional record and removing the resulting sanctions. Docket #5 at 5. Applicant mentions
nothing in the present motion indicating how an upcoming transfer relates to his claims or requests
for relief in this case.
