ORDER OF DISMISSAL
THIS MATTER is before the Court on Petitioner's motion to defer restitution payments. Pursuant to recent Fourth Circuit decisions, the Petitioner's motion shall be construed as a habeas corpus petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2241. See Hudson v. United States, 2007 WL 901591 (4th Cir. 2007); Gripper v. United States, 2007 WL 1115953 (4th Cir. 2007). Construed as such, it is incumbent on this Court to make a determination whether to transfer the action to the district court of Petitioner's confinement or dismiss the action without prejudice to the Petitioner to refile same in the appropriate district court. Id. The Court, therefore, finds that the interests of justice would
