UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
February 3, 2010
SHAWN DOYLE, 06A1215, PETITIONER,
MARK BRADT, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Michael A. Telesca United States District Judge
Petitioner, an inmate at the Elmira Correctional Facility, has brought this proceeding under 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner seeks to challenge a conviction reached in Washington County Court located in the Northern District of New York. The Court finds that the Northern 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 (1973). The determination of the petitioner's motions for permission to proceed in forma pauperis and for appointment of counsel have been left to the Northern District of New York.
IT HEREBY IS ORDERED, that the case is transferred to the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York.
