IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
March 19, 2010
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
VANDELL THOMAS PAGE
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Arthur J. Schwab United States District Judge
Order Denying Motion Regarding Conditions of Confinement (Doc. No. 111)
The Court construes petitioner Vandell Page's Pro Se Letter Motion (Doc. No. 111) as a motion regarding his conditions of confinement in FCI-Oakdale, Louisiana and his planned transfer to a Federal Correctional Institution in California. As such, this Court has no jurisdiction to address such a motion. Petitioner's recourse is to the District Court in Oklahoma pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241, after exhausting any available administrative procedures with the Bureau of Prisons.
Accordingly, the Court will deny his motion without prejudice and, by this Order, will appoint and direct counsel previously appointed for defendant to consider petitioner's letter motion and, if counsel deems it appropriate, contact the BOP about petitioner's concerns. Counsel should contact the Deputy Clerk regarding the necessary CJA forms.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Petitioner's Motion Regarding Conditions of Confinement (Doc. No. 111) is DENIED without prejudice.
