Smith v. Lyden et al
ORDER denying 11 Motion to Change Venue to the Eastern District of California, by Magistrate Judge Boyd N. Boland on 5/23/2013.(skl)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 13-cv-00964-BNB
JOE DRIVER, and
G.E.O. CORR. OF AMERICA,
Plaintiff, Tommy Smith, is a prisoner in the custody of the Alaska Department of
Corrections and currently is incarcerated at a private correctional facility in Hudson,
Colorado. At issue is the Motion to Change Venue to the Eastern District of California,
ECF No. 11, that Plaintiff filed on May 22, 2013. Under 28 U.S.C. § 1404 a transfer of a
case to a different federal court is within the sound judicial discretion of a trial judge.
Stewart Organization, Inc. v. Ricoh Corp., 487 U.S. 22, 29 (1988); Texas E.
Transmission Corp. v. Marine Office-Appleton & Cox Corp., 579 F.2d 561, 567 (10th
Cir. 1978). Nothing in Plaintiff’s Motion justifies a transfer of this case under
§ 1404. Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion to Change Venue to the Eastern District of
California, ECF No. 11, is denied.
DATED May 23, 2013, at Denver, Colorado.
BY THE COURT:
s/ Boyd N. Boland
