L. DICKINSON, Warden, ) ) Respondent. _________________________________ ) BRUCE ARMAND CERNY, C 10-01862 JF (PR) ORDER OF TRANSFER Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254 challenging the 2007 and 2008 Board of Prison Terms' decisions finding him unsuitable for parole. Petitioner has paid the filing fee. Although it is not readily apparent where the parole hearings occurred, it is clear that Petitioner is currently confined at the California Medical Facility in Vacaville of Solano County, which is located within the venue of the Eastern District of California. 28 U.S.C. 84(b). Venue in a habeas action is proper in either the district of confinement or the district of conviction, 28 U.S.C. 2241(d); however, the district of confinement is the preferable forum to review the execution of a sentence, such as a parole denial claim.
