The Court finds that the interests of justice would be best served by transferring this case

The Clerk of the Court shall TRANSFER PLAINTIFF’S ENTIRE CASE FILES to the
Eastern District of Arkansas, Jonesboro Division, 615 South Main Street, Room 312, Jonesboro, AR
IT IS SO ORDERED this 31st day of May, 2013.

UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE

district shall dismiss, or if it be in the interest of justice, transfer such case to any district or
division in which it could have been brought.” Id.
