[Re: ECF No. 1] PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, 12 For the Northern District of California UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 11 No. C 14-5208 LB Respondent. _____________________________________/ Petitioner, an inmate at the California State Prison in Lancaster, filed this pro se action for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 to challenge his conviction from the Sacramento County Superior Court. He is confined in Los Angeles County, within the venue of the Central District of California. His conviction occurred in Sacramento County, within the venue of the Eastern District of California. Venue is proper in a habeas action in either the district of confinement or the district of conviction, 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d), although a petition challenging a conviction or the sentence imposed is preferably heard in the district of conviction. See N. D. Cal. Habeas L.R. 22543(b). Because petitioner's conviction occurred within the Eastern District of California, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a) and Habeas L.R. 2254-3(b), and in the interest of justice, this action is TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. The clerk shall transfer this matter forthwith. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: December 2, 2014 27 _______________________________ LAUREL BEELER United States Magistrate Judge 28 C 14-5208 LB ORDER
