The Report notes that the petition is identical to a petition filed in this court by the Plaintiff on February 15, 2011 (1:11-CV-308). That petition was transferred to the District of New Jersey, the sentencing court, by this court’s order on March 23, 2011. We respectfully decline to follow Judge Carlson’s recommendation that this case be transferred to the sentencing court. In the interest of conserving judicial resources for all concerned, this duplicate proceeding should be dismissed and the claims raised herein can be pursued in 1:11-CV-308, which is now before the sentencing court in New Jersey. It is Ordered that this case is dismissed. The Clerk of Court shall close the file. /s/William W. Caldwell William W. Caldwell United States District Judge
