AUSTIN GARRICK SMITH, Inmate No. 97002391, Petitioner,
STATE OF GEORGIA, Respondent.
MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S FINAL REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
JUSTIN S. ANAND, Magistrate Judge.
Petitioner has filed what he styled a "Motion for Bail and Stay of Further Proceedings, " that the Clerk has docketed as a habeas corpus action under 28 U.S.C. § 2241. (Doc. 1). Petitioner recently filed a federal habeas petition pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254, in which he challenges his February 11, 2013, convictions and sentences in the Gwinnett County Superior Court. See Smith v. Georgia, Civil Action No. 1:14-CV-3515-SCJ-JSA. In the current motion, Petitioner asks this Court to issue bail and stay pending state court proceedings until this Court decides his federal habeas petition. (Doc. 1).
As it appears that Petitioner intended to file the motion in his current habeas action, IT IS RECOMMENDED that the instant action [Doc. 1] be ADMINISTRATIVELY CLOSED and filed in Civil Action No. 1:14-CV-3515-TWT-JSA.
The Clerk is DIRECTED to terminate the referral to the undersigned Magistrate Judge.
IT IS SO RECOMMENDED.
