No. C 08-01883 CW (PR) ORDER OF TRANSFER
Petitioner, v. STATE OF CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, Respondent. /
Petitioner, a state prisoner, has filed a pro se petition for a writ of habeas corpus in which he challenges the execution of his sentence. He seeks leave to proceed in forma pauperis (IFP).
A petition for a writ of habeas corpus filed by a state prisoner in a State that contains two or more federal judicial districts may be filed in either the district of confinement or the district of conviction. See 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d). The district
court where the petition is filed, however, may transfer the petition to the other district in the furtherance of justice. id. See
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). But if a habeas petition is directed to the manner in which a sentence is being executed, e.g., if it involves parole or time credit claims, the district of confinement is the preferable forum. See Habeas L.R. 2254-3(a); Dunne v. Henman, 875 F.2d 244, 249 (9th Cir. 1989).

Petitioner is incarcerated at Deuel Vocational Institution, which lies within the venue of the Eastern District of California. See 28 U.S.C. § 84. Because Petitioner challenges the execution of
his sentence, the Court hereby ORDERS that pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a) and Habeas L.R. 2254-3(b), and in the interests of justice, this petition be TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California.
