properly be addressed in that district.
Accordingly, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d), petitioner’s petition for a writ of habeas
corpus is hereby transferred to the United States District Court for the WESTERN District
of Oklahoma for all further proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 7th day of March 2013.
