REGINALD F. NALLS
SCOTT RUSSELL, et al.
Reginald Nalls, an inmate at the Ashley County Detention Facility, filed a civil complaint
(Doc. No. 2) and an Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis (Doc. No. 1) on April 18, 2012.
In his Complaint, Mr. Nalls alleges that his constitutional rights were violated when he was
arrested and charged with possession of cocaine.
According to allegations in the Complaint, all events giving rise to this lawsuit occurred
in Crossett (Ashley County), Arkansas, which lies in the Western District of Arkansas. For that
reason, the interests of justice would best be served by transferring this case to the United States
District Court for the Western District of Arkansas, under 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a) and
28 U.S.C. § 1391(e).
The Clerk of Court is directed to transfer this case immediately to the United States
District Court for the Western District of Arkansas, El Dorado Division, 101 South Jackson
Avenue, Room 205, El Dorado, Arkansas 71730.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 20th day of April, 2012.
