MAURICE JUNIOUS, Warden,
ORDER OF TRANSFER
Petitioner has filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus to challenge his conviction from the
Solano County Superior Court. Solano County lies within the venue of the Eastern District of
California. Petitioner is confined at the North Kern State Prison in Kern County, also within the
venue of 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), although a petition challenging a
conviction or the sentence imposed is preferably heard in the district of conviction. See N. D. Cal.
Habeas L.R. 2254-3(b). Here, the proper venue is the Eastern District of California because that is
the district in which petitioner was convicted and is confined. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a) and
Habeas L.R. 2254-3(b), and in the interests of justice, this action is TRANSFERRED to the United
States District Court for the Eastern District of California. The Clerk shall transfer this matter
IT IS SO ORDERED.
