He proceeds pro se and has filed an application for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant 19 to 28 U.S.C. § 2241, together with a request to proceed in forma pauperis. Merced County is part of the Fresno Division of the United States District Court for the 20 21 Eastern District of California. See Local Rule 120(d). Pursuant to Local Rule 120(f), a civil 22 action which has not been commenced in the proper division of a court may, on the court’s own 23 motion, be transferred to the proper division of that court.

The court has not ruled on petitioner’s request to proceed in forma 27 pauperis. 28 ///// 1 1 Accordingly, it is hereby ordered that: 2 1. This action is transferred to the district court in Fresno. 3 2. The Clerk of Court shall assign a new case number. 4 3.
