14 Petitioner is a state prisoner currently incarcerated at Mule Creek State Prison,
15 located in Ione, California, within the venue of the United States District Court for the
16 Eastern District of California. On July 30, 2007, Petitioner filed this petition regarding
17 his parole hearing before the Board of Prison Terms. The Court notes that Petitioner
18 also filed an earlier petition in this district under case number C 07-3840 JSW (PR),
19 which was previously transferred to the United States District Court for the Eastern
20 District of California. Petitioner has paid the filing fee on this petition.
21 A petition for a writ of habeas corpus made by a person in custody under the
22 judgment and sentence of a state court of a state which contains two or more federal
23 judicial districts may be filed in either the district of confinement or the district of
24 conviction. See 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d). Each of such districts shall have concurrent
25 jurisdiction to entertain the petition; however, the district court for the district where the
26 petition is filed may transfer the petition to the other district in the furtherance of justice.
27 See id. However, if the petition is directed to the manner in which a sentence is being
28 executed, e.g., if it involves parole or time credits claims, the district of confinement is
the preferable forum. See Habeas L.R. 2254-3(a); Dunne v. Henman, 875 F.2d 244, 249

1 (9th Cir. 1989).

2 Petitioner’s claims are directed to the execution of sentence, in that they involve

3 the failure of the Board to find Petitioner suitable for parole. Therefore, this Court will

4 transfer this action to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of

5 California. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED in the interest of justice, and pursuant to 28

6 U.S.C. § 1406(a), that this action be TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court

7 for the Eastern District of California. The Clerk of the Court shall transfer this matter

8 forthwith.

9 IT IS SO ORDERED.
