DARREL G. ADAMS, 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 has also filed a motion to stay federal habeas proceedings until all state remedies are exhausted. 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). 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 United States District Court For the Northern District of California 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Petitioner is incarcerated at Corcoran State Prison, which lies within the venue of the Central District of California. 28 U.S.C. 84. See 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 and any pending motions be TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
