Castro v. Holland
ORDER Transferring This Case To The U.S. District Court For The Central District Of California, signed by Magistrate Judge Sandra M. Snyder on 3/11/2015. CASE TRANSFERRED to District of Central District of California. (Fahrney, E)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 1:15-cv-00374-SMS HC
ORDER TRANSFERRING THIS CASE TO
THE U.S. DISTRICT COURT FOR THE
CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
On March 9, 2015, Petitioner Jorge Castro filed this pro se petition for writ of habeas corpus
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner alleges constitutional violations arising from his 2011
conviction in Riverside County Superior Court. Riverside County, California, is within the venue of
the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.
Venue for a habeas action is proper in either the district of confinement or the district of
conviction. 38 U.S.C. § 2241 (d). In a state with multiple federal districts, the District Court of the
district in which a petitioner is confined may, in its discretion, transfer a petition concerning
conviction and sentencing to the district in which the petitioner was convicted and sentenced. Such
transfer generally furthers judicial economy since the witnesses and documentation are present in the
district of conviction and sentencing.
Accordingly, the Court hereby ORDERS that this case be TRANSFERRED to the United
States District Court for the Central District of California.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
