1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 v. J O H N MARSHALL, warden, Res pon dent. / P e t i ti o n e r has filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus to challenge the denial of parole su ita bi lity. Petitioner is incarcerated, and apparently had his parole suitability hearing, at the Calif ornia Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo County. San Luis Obispo County is within the v e n u e of the Central District of California. Venue is proper in a habeas action in either the d i s tr i c t of confinement or the district of conviction, 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d); however, the district o f confinement is the preferable forum to review the execution of a sentence, such as a parole d e n i a l claim. See Habeas L.R. 2254-3(a); Dunne v. Henman, 875 F.2d 244, 249 (9th Cir. 1989). B e c a u s e petitioner is confined in the Central District of California and challenging the execution o f his sentence, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a) and Habeas L.R. 2254-3(b), and in the interests o f justice, this action is TRANSFERRED to the United States D i s t r ic t Court for the Central D i s t r ic t of California. The clerk shall transfer this matter forthwith. I T IS SO ORDERED. D A T E D : November 27, 2006 SUSAN ILLSTON U n i t e d States District Judge N E L S O N T. BUTLER, Petitioner, No .
