No. C 15-264 SI (pr)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
RONALD DAVIS, warden,
Michael Eugene Thomas, an inmate at San Quentin State Prison, has filed a petition for
writ of habeas corpus to challenge his conviction from the Kern County Superior Court. Kern
County lies within the venue of the Eastern District of California. The facility Thomas is
incarcerated at is in Marin County, within the venue of the Northern District of California.
Venue is proper in a habeas action in either the district of confinement or the district of conviction, 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d); however, a petition challenging a conviction or the sentence imposed
is preferably heard in the district of conviction. See N. D. Cal. Habeas L.R. 2254-3(b). Because
the conviction occurred in the Eastern District of California, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a) and
Habeas L.R. 2254-3(b), and in the interests of justice, this action is TRANSFERRED to the
United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. The clerk shall transfer this
IT IS SO ORDERED.
