VASHON TYRONE JACKSON, PETITIONER,
PAM AHLIN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, RESPONDENT.
Petitioner, a civil detainee at Coalinga State Hospital being held under California's "Sexually Violent Predators Act," has filed an application for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254. He has not filed a request to proceed in forma pauperis or paid the filing fee.
Pursuant to Local Rule 120(f), a civil action which has not been commenced in the proper division of a court may, on the court's own motion, be transferred to the proper division of the court. Therefore, this action will be transferred to the Fresno Division of the court. See Russ v. Ahlin, No. 1:09-CV-01904 DLB HC, 2011 WL 4048776 at *4 (E.D. Cal. Sept. 9, 2011) ("Petitioner is currently confined in the Coalinga State Hospital located in Fresno County, California, which is within the [Fresno Division of the] Eastern District of California and thus venue is proper in the Eastern District.").

1. This action is transferred to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California sitting in Fresno; and
2. All future filings shall reference the new Fresno case number assigned and shall be filed at:
