ORDER OF TRANSFER
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
This is a habeas case filed pro se by a state prisoner. Plaintiff was convicted in
1972 in Amador County which is located in the Eastern District of California. He is currently
incarcerated in Delano, CA, which is also in the Eastern District of California. In this
petition, he argues that he is entitled to be released in light of a recent order in Brown v.
Plata, ––– U.S. ––––, 131 S.Ct. 1910 (2011).
Venue is proper in a habeas action in either the district of confinement or the district
of conviction, 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d); this district is neither. Therefore, this petition is
transferred to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. See 28
U.S.C. § 1404(a); Habeas L.R. 2254-3(b).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: January 26, 2015.
