RICHARD F. BOULWARE, II, District Judge.
Petitioner Nancy E. Nash has submitted a pro se "informal brief," and a motion for leave to file a new petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (ECF Nos. 1-1, 1-2, 2). She has not filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis or paid the filing fee. Thus, this case has not been properly commenced and is subject to dismissal on that basis. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2) and Local Rule LSR1-2.
Moreover, the court may take judicial notice of its docket, and Nash has another habeas petition pending in this court challenging the same judgment of conviction, state case no. C237504 (See ECF No. 1-2; 2:16-cv-00901-JCM-NJK).
"AEDPA generally limits a petitioner to one federal habeas corpus motion and precludes "second or successive" habeas corpus petitions unless the petitioner meets certain narrow requirements. The statute provides that a claim presented in a second or successive habeas corpus application under section 2254 that was not presented in a prior application shall be dismissed unless it relies on a new rule of constitutional law, made retroactive to cases on collateral review by the Supreme Court, that was previously unavailable or on newly discovered facts that show a high probability of actual innocence."
Accordingly, this petition is duplicative and is also dismissed on that basis.
