IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
TRA DAMON TUDMON
WARDEN, FCI BEAUMONT
CIVIL ACTION NO. 9:20cv156
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER REGARDING VENUE
Petitioner Tra Damon Tudmon filed this petition for writ of habeas corpus under 28 U.S.C.
§ 2241 challenging the computation of his sentence. The district and division of incarceration is the
proper venue for a Section 2241 petition. Hooker v. Sivley, 187 F.3d 680, 682 (5th Cir. 1999). As
petitioner is incarcerated in Jefferson County, Texas, venue is proper in the Eastern District of Texas.
See 28 U.S.C. § 124. However, as Jefferson County is located in the Beaumont Division rather than
the Lufkin Division of this court, this matter should be transferred to the Beaumont Division. It is
ORDERED this petition for writ of habeas corpus is TRANSFERRED to the Beaumont
Division of this Court.
SIGNED this 31st day of July, 2020.
United States Magistrate Judge
