Petitioner, a state prisoner incarcerated at Pelican Bay State Prison in Crescent City, California, has filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus seeking review of his criminal conviction from Fresno County, which lies within the venue of the Eastern District of California. See 28 USC § 84(b). Venue is proper in a habeas action in either the district of conviction or the district of confinement, see id § 2241(d). However, federal courts in California traditionally have chosen to hear petitions challenging a conviction or sentence in the district of conviction. See Dannenberg v. Ingle, 831 F. Supp. 767, 767 (N.D. Cal. 1993); Laue v. Nelson, 279 F. Supp. 265, 266 (N.D. Cal. 1968). Therefore, the Court ORDERS that pursuant to 28 USC § 1404(a) and Habeas LR 2254-3(b), and in the interest of justice, the Clerk of the Court shall TRANSFER this matter to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. In light of the transfer, this Court will not resolve Petitioner's pending motion (docket no. 2). IT IS SO ORDERED. DATED: July 26, 2007 _______________________ JEFFREY S. WHITE United States District Judge
