IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS WESTERN DIVISION RANDY LOYD TURPEN, ADC # 111165 v. PLAINTIFF Case No. 4:11-cv-550-DPM-JTR RITTER, KREGGER, CONGER, WAGNER, COODY, JEREMY MIMMES, PARTAIN, and DOES DEFENDANTS ORDER The Court finds that the interests of justice would be best served by transferring this case to the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas. Venue lies in the Western District, as all Defendants are there and the events complained of allegedly occurred there. 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a). The Clerk of the Court is directed to transfer Turpen's entire case file to the Western District of Arkansas, Fort Smith Division Division, 500 North State Line Avenue, Room 302, Texarkana, AR 71854-5961. The transfer should be immediate; there is no need to wait a reasonable time, cf In reo Nine Mile Limited, 673 F.2d 242, 243 (8th Cir. 1982), because the receiving Court is also in the Eighth Circuit and, if he wants to do so, Turpen can challenge the transfer by taking his appeal from that Court as easily and completely as he could appeal from this Court. So Ordered. V -2­ I
