Petitioner has submitted a Motion for Reconsideration (#4) and a Motion to Amend the Pleadings (#5). Nothing in those motions changes the Court's conclusion that the correct respondent is the warden of the Washington prison where Petitioner is held, and that the Court does not have jurisdiction over that warden. To the extent that the Petition could be construed as filed pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254, the Court concludes that reasonable jurists would not find the dismissal to be debatable, and the Court will not grant a certificate of appealability. /// /// /// /// /// /// vs. UNITED STATES, et al., Respondents.
