"The district court of a district in which is filed a case laying venue in the wrong division or 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.
Plaintiff Freeman, presumably on behalf of the other named plaintiffs, raises several claims in connection with their conditions of confinement in the Union County Jail, mostly related to health issues. The complaint is unsigned and appears to be brought by plaintiff Freeman alone.
