OPINION AND ORDER
Petitioner has filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254.
A review of the petition, however, indicates petitioner was convicted in Delaware County,
Oklahoma, which is located within the territorial jurisdiction of the Northern District of
Oklahoma. Therefore, in the furtherance of justice, this matter may more 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 Northern
District of Oklahoma for all further proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 7th day of March 2013.
