United States 4th Circuit Court of Appeals Reports


In Re: WATSON, 06-7534 (4th Cir. 1-8-2007) In Re: COURTNEY
CONSTANTINE WATSON, Petitioner. No. 06-7534. United States
Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit. Submitted: December 20,
2006. Decided: January 8, 2007.

[EDITOR’S NOTE: This case is unpublished as indicated by the
issuing court.] On Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus.

Before WILKINSON, NIEMEYER, and KING, Circuit Judges.

Dismissed without prejudice by unpublished per curiam

Courtney Constantine Watson, Petitioner Pro Se.

Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this


Courtney Constantine Watson filed an original 28 U.S.C.
§ 2241 (2000) petition in this court. Because Watson
is incarcerated in Georgia, no circuit judge on this court
has jurisdiction over his § 2241 petition.
Accordingly, we deny leave to proceed in forma pauperis and
dismiss the § 2241 petition without prejudice to
Watson’s right to refile the petition in the district of
his incarceration. We dispense with oral argument because
the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in
the materials before the court and argument would not aid
the decisional process.
