Petitioner seeks federal habeas review of the execution of a sentence imposed by San
Bernardino County Superior Court, which lies within the venue of the Central District of
California, Eastern Division. See 28 U.S.C. § 84(c)(1). Petitioner is incarcerated at the Substance
Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison, Corcoran in Kings County, which lies within the venue
of the Eastern District of California. See id. § 84(b).
Venue is proper in a habeas action in either the district of conviction or the district of
confinement, see 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d); however, the district of confinement is the preferable forum
to review the execution of a sentence. See Habeas L.R. 2254-3(a); Dunne v. Henman, 875 F.2d
244, 249 (9th Cir. 1989).
Because Kings County lies in the Eastern District of California, the court ORDERS that
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a) and Habeas Local Rule 2254-3(b), and in the interest of justice,
this petition be TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
