IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA PANAMA CITY DIVISION BILLY SWAIN, Petitioner, vs. JAMES MCDONOUGH, Respondent. Case No. 5:07cv96/RS/MD

ORDER This cause is before the court upon petitioner filing a petition for writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (doc. 1).

The court which entered the judgment of conviction under attack is the Circuit Court of Duval County, Florida.

Accordingly, it is therefore ORDERED: The clerk shall transfer this case to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida. DONE AND ORDERED this 15th day of May, 2007.
