ORDER TRANSFERRING CAUSE TO
THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
This cause comes before the Court sua sponte. On September 11, 2014, a
Petition for habeas corpus relief was filed by Petitioner Ryan Anthony Savinell. He
contests his 2009 conviction in the Circuit Court of Desoto County, Mississippi.
Desoto County is located in the Northern District of Mississippi. He is serving the
sentence at South Mississippi Correctional Institution, which is located in the
Southern District of Mississippi.
Title 28, United States Code, Section 2241(d) provides:
Where an application for a writ of habeas corpus is made
by a person in custody under the judgment and sentence
of a State court of a State which contains two or more
Federal Judicial Districts, the application may be filed in
the district court for the district wherein such person is in
custody or in the district court for the district within
which the State court was held which convicted and
sentenced him and each of such district courts shall have
concurrent jurisdiction to entertain the application. The
district court for the district wherein such an application
is filed in the exercise of its discretion and in furtherance
of justice may transfer the application to the other district
court for hearing and determination.
28 U.S.C. § 2241(d). Savinell is contesting a conviction from the Desoto County
Circuit Court, located in the Northern District of Mississippi. Therefore, this case
will be transferred to the United States District Court for the Northern District of
Mississippi. Accordingly, in the exercise of the Court’s discretion and in the
furtherance of justice, it is hereby,
ORDERED that this Petition for habeas relief and other documents filed in
the instant civil action be transferred to the United States District Court for the
Northern District of Mississippi, Delta Division.
SO ORDERED AND ADJUDGED this the 14th day of October, 2014.
