1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 CURTIS DANE SANDERS, 12 Petitioner, 13 14 v. No. 2:17-cv-2373 KJN P ORDER ANDRE MATEVOUSIAN, 15 Respondent. 16 17 Petitioner, a federal prisoner proceeding without counsel, has filed a habeas corpus 18 petition pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. Petitioner is incarcerated at Atwater U.S. Penitentiary 19 located in Atwater, California. 20 Petitioner alleges that he is challenging constitutional violations committed by prison 21 officials in executing his sentence. However, petitioner’s claims for relief all challenge 22 conditions of confinement at Atwater U.S. Penitentiary. In claim one, petitioner alleges that 23 prison officials violated his right to access the courts by failing to process his administrative 24 grievances. In claim two, petitioner alleges that prison officials violated his rights by restricting 25 his “general corresponding.” In claim three, petitioner alleges that prison officials violated his 26 rights by restricting his incoming mail. Finally, in claim four, petitioner alleges that prison 27 officials violated his rights by restricting him from receiving books from publishers, books stores 28 and book clubs. 1 1 Because petitioner challenges the conditions of his confinement, the undersigned 2 construes this action as a Bivens action. See Bivenv. Six Unknown Named Agents of Federal 3 Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971). The alleged violations took place in Merced County, 4 which is part of the Fresno Division of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of 5 California. See Local Rule 120(d). 6 Pursuant to Local Rule 120(f), a civil action which has not been commenced in the proper 7 division of a court may, on the court’s own motion, be transferred to the proper division of the 8 court. Therefore, this action will be transferred to the Fresno Division of the court. 9 10 11 12 13 Good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 1. This action is transferred to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California sitting in Fresno; and 2. All future filings shall reference the new Fresno case number assigned and shall be filed at: 14 United States District Court 15 Eastern District of California 16 2500 Tulare Street 17 Fresno, CA 93721 18 19 Dated: November 20, 2017 20 21 22 23 24 San2373.tra 25 26 27 28 2
