IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
SCOTT LEROY RHEAM
ADC # 149727
CASE NO. 4:11CV00515 BSM
Circuit Judge, Hot Springs County, et al.
Although plaintiff Scott Rheam filed this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 case in this district, it
appears from the allegations contained in the complaint [Doc. No. 1] that venue properly lies
in the Western District of Arkansas, Hot Springs Division. Accordingly, the interests of
justice would be best served by transferring this case to the United States District Court for
the Western District of Arkansas pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a) and 28 U.S.C. § 1391(e).
The clerk is directed to immediately transfer a copy of this order and the original file
herein to the Clerk of the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 16th day of December 2011.
