Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed an application for a writ of habeas
corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner challenges a prison disciplinary conviction,
which is a challenge to the execution of his sentence. As a general rule, “[t]he proper forum to
challenge the execution of a sentence is the district where the prisoner is confined.” Dunne v.

Colony, East in San Luis Obispo County, which lies in the Central District of California. See 28
U.S.C. § 84(a).
Accordingly, in the furtherance of justice, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter is
transferred to the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
