IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 8, 2010
LORENZO BROOKS, PETITIONER,
ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
Petitioner, a county prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed an application for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. Petitioner has neither paid the $5.00 filing fee for this action nor filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254.
Petitioner is incarcerated in Riverside County Jail and was convicted in Riverside County. Riverside County is in an area embraced by the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C § 2241(d), courts in both the district of conviction and the district of confinement have concurrent jurisdiction over applications for habeas corpus filed by state prisoners. Because petitioner was not convicted in this district, and is not presently confined here, this court does not have jurisdiction to entertain the application.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter is transferred to the United States District Court for the Central District of California. 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d); 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a).
