ALLISON CLAIRE, Magistrate Judge.
By order filed April 12, 2017, respondent was directed to respond to the portion of the petition challenging the execution of petitioner's sentence. ECF No. 7. Respondent has now filed a motion requesting that the petition be transferred to the District Court for the Northern District of California, where petitioner also has a petition pending challenging his underlying conviction. ECF No. 10. Although the portion of the petition that alleges improper computation and application of petitioner's good time credits is a challenge to the execution of his sentence and therefore generally more appropriate in this court,
Accordingly, in the furtherance of justice, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter is transferred to the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.
