IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ADC # 150118
Razorback Cab Company; et al.
Mr. Fields, an inmate in the East Arkansas Regional Unit of the Arkansas Department of
Correction, filed this action pro se pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. It appears, however, that the
defendants named in the Complaint are residents of Sebastian County, Arkansas, and that the events
giving rise to Plaintiff’s claim occurred in Sebastian County. (Doc. No. 1.) Our federal venue
statute provides that in cases not based on diversity of citizenship, venue is proper in “a judicial
district where any defendant resides” or where “a substantial part of the events or omissions giving
rise to the claim occurred[.]” 28 U.S.C. § 1391 (West 2006).
Sebastian County is in the Fort Smith Division of the United States District Court for the
Western District of Arkansas. The Court finds that the interest of justice will best be served by
transferring the case there. This case is, therefore, immediately transferred to the United States
District Court for the Western District of Arkansas, Fort Smith Division.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 4th day of October 2011.
