Marvin Lewis Jones, Jr., brought an action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against Chance Hankins,

The allegations concern events that occurred at the Ashley County Detention Center in Ashley
County, Arkansas. Ashley County is in the Western District of Arkansas, not the Eastern District
of Arkansas. See 28 U.S.C. § 83. Therefore, venue over this action is in the Western District of
Arkansas, not in the Eastern District. 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Accordingly, the Clerk is directed to
transfer this action to the Western District of Arkansas immediately.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 27th day of September, 2011.
