FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS / Petitioner, a federal prisoner without counsel, seeks a writ of habeas corpus under 28 17 U.S.C. § 2241. Petitioner challenges the execution of his sentence. Accordingly, on June 22, 18 2010, the court issued an order to petitioner to show cause why the case should not be transferred 19 to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, which is located in the 20 geographic territory in which his sentence is being executed. Dckt. No. 8.

L.R. 183(b). If mail directed to such a petitioner is returned by the postal 24 service and petitioner fails to notify the court and opposing parties within 63 days thereafter of 25 his current address, the court may dismiss the action without prejudice for failure to prosecute. 26 Id. More than 63 days have passed since the postal service returned the mail and petitioner has 1 Dockets.Justia.com 1 2 3 not notified the court of his current address. Accordingly, it is hereby RECOMMENDED that this action be dismissed. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b); L. R. 110, 183(b). 4 These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District Judge 5 assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). Within fourteen days 6 after being served with these findings and recommendations, any party may file written 7 objections with the court and serve a copy on all parties.
