CALIFORNIA DEPT. OF
REHABILITATION, et al.,
\u201cA petitioner for habeas corpus relief must name the state officer having custody
of him or her as the respondent to the petition.\u201d Stanley v. California Supreme Court, 21 F.3d
359, 360 (9th Cir. 1994) (citing Rule 2(a), 28 U.S.C. foll. \u00a7 2254). Petitioner has named the
California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (\u201cCDCR\u201d) as respondent in this action.
The CDCR is not the proper respondent in this action. The proper respondent in the usual habeas
action is the warden of the institution where the petitioner is currently incarcerated. Accordingly,
the instant petition must be dismissed with leave to amend. See Stanley, 21 F.3d at 360.
