UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
December 10, 2008
ANDRE L. LEWIS, PETITIONER,
RONALD MOSCICKI, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Michael A. Telesca United States District Judge
Petitioner, an inmate at the Lakeview Correctional Facility, has brought this proceeding under 28 U.S.C. § 2254, and has paid the fee. Petitioner seeks to challenge a conviction reached in the County Court located in Suffolk County, New York. The Court finds that the Eastern District of New York would be a more convenient forum for this action because all of the records relating to the petitioner's underlying criminal conviction are located in that district. See Braden v. 30th Judicial Circuit Court of Kentucky, 410 U.S. 484, 499, n.15, 93 S.Ct. 1123, 1132, n.15, 35 L.Ed.2d 443 (1973).
IT HEREBY IS ORDERED, that the case is transferred to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
