Petitioner, a prisoner of the State of California , has filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus in this Court challenging the constitutionality of his state conviction from Sacramento County. Petitioner has also filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis (docket no. 2). Venue is proper in a habeas action in either the district of conviction or the district of confinement, see id § 2241(d). 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 forthwith. In light of the transfer, this Court will not resolve Petitioner's pending motion (docket no. 2). IT IS SO ORDERED. DATED: October 5, 2010 JEFFREY S. WHITE United States District Judge
