Venue for a habeas action is proper in either the district of confinement or the district of 20 conviction. 28 U.S.C. § 2241 (d). In a state with multiple federal districts, the District Court of 21 22 the district in which a petitioner is confined may, in its discretion, transfer a petition concerning 23 conviction and sentencing to the district in which the petitioner was convicted and sentenced. 24 Such transfers generally further judicial economy since the witnesses and documentation are 25 present in the district of conviction and sentencing. 26 27 In this case, Petitioner was convicted in the Los Angeles County Superior Court and is currently confined at the Kern Valley State Prison, Kern County, California. Because Petitioner 28 1 1 is challenging his conviction, the case is most appropriate in the Central District of California. 2 3 Accordingly, the Court hereby ORDERS that this case be TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Central District of California. 4 5 6 7 IT IS SO ORDERED.
