COPLEY v. YORK BEACH POLICE CHIEF et al
ORDER ON OBJECTION TO MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S RULING re 46 Objection By JUDGE D. BROCK HORNBY. (jib)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MAINE
YORK BEACH POLICE CHIEF
YORK COUNTY SHERIFF,
CIVIL NO. 2:16-CV-458-DBH
ORDER ON OBJECTION TO MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S RULING
This plaintiff, who says that he is incarcerated in Connecticut, seeks an
extradition hearing in Maine, arguing that the York County Sheriff’s Office
unlawfully transported him to Connecticut. Previously this Court denied the
plaintiff habeas corpus relief because the District of Maine lacks jurisdiction over
him while he is in Connecticut. Copley v Vartelas, 2:16-cv-343-DBH (ECF Nos.
As Magistrate Judge Nivison informed the plaintiff in his Order of
May 11, 2017 (ECF No. 45), that same limitation applies to this civil lawsuit. The
Magistrate Judge was therefore entirely correct in denying his motion to conduct
a hearing under the Uniform Criminal Extradition Act, and I AFFIRM the
Magistrate Judge’s ruling.
DATED THIS 6TH DAY OF JUNE, 2017
/S/D. BROCK HORNBY
D. BROCK HORNBY
