ORDER OF TRANSFER
ANTHONY HEDGPETH, Warden,
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 11-1904 PJH (PR)
This is a habeas case filed pro se by a state prisoner. Petitioner seeks to challenge a
13 conviction obtained in the Superior Court in and for Sacramento County. Sacramento
14 County is in the venue of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
15 California. Petitioner is incarcerated at Salinas Valley State Prison, which is in this district.
Venue for a habeas action is proper in either the district of confinement or the district
17 of conviction, 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d); however, petitions challenging a conviction are
18 preferably heard in the district of conviction. Habeas L.R. 2254-3(a); Laue v. Nelson, 279 F.
19 Supp. 265, 266 (N.D. Cal. 1968).
Because petitioner was convicted in Sacramento County, this case is
21 TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California.
22 See 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a); Habeas L.R. 2254-3(b).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
