Calloway v. Davis
ORDER TRANSFERRING CASE to Eastern District. Signed by Judge Nandor J. Vadas on 7/28/2017. (Attachments: # 1 Certificate/Proof of Service)(njvlc1, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 7/28/2017)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 17-cv-3710-NJV (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
United States District Court
Northern District of California
This is a petition for writ of habeas corpus filed pro se by a state prisoner. He seeks review
of a prison disciplinary finding that resulted in the loss of time credits. The disciplinary finding
occurred in this district. However, plaintiff is currently housed at California Health Care Facility-
Stockton, which is in 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); however, the district of confinement is the preferable forum to
review the execution of a sentence. Habeas L.R. 2254-3(a); Dunne v. Henman, 875 F.2d 244, 249
(9th Cir. 1989). Because petitioner’s challenge goes to the execution of his sentence, this petition
is transferred to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. See 28
U.S.C. § 1404(a); Habeas L.R. 2254-3(b).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 28, 2017
