IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA

CLIFTON JONES,

1:13-cv-01024-GSA (HC)

Petitioner,



vs.

P. D. BRAZELTON

Respondent.

/

ORDER TRANSFERRING CASE TO THE
SACRAMENTO DIVISION OF THE
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT,
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA

Petitioner, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed a habeas corpus action pursuant to

28 U.S.C. § 2254, together with a request to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C.

§ 1915.

The petitioner is challenging a conviction from Sacramento County, which is part of the

Sacramento Division of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California.

Therefore, the petition should have been filed in the Sacramento Division.

Pursuant to Local Rule 120(f), a civil action which has not been commenced in the proper

court may, on the court’s own motion, be transferred to the proper court. Therefore, this action

will be transferred to the Sacramento Division. This court will not rule on petitioner's request to

proceed in forma pauperis.
