Lindsey v. Reed et al
ORDER transferring the case to the Western District of Arkansas. The Clerk is directed to immediately transfer the entire case file to the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 4/4/13. (kpr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
RONALD G. LINDSEY, SR.
Plaintiff has submitted this 42 U.S. C. §1983 case for filing in this district.
But from the facts alleged and the Defendants named, venue properly lies in
the Western District of Arkansas. 28 U.S.C. §1391(b). Accordingly, the Court
finds that the interests of justice would best be served by transferring this case
there. 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a). The Clerk is therefore directed to immediately*
transfer the entire case file to the United States District Court for the Western
District of Arkansas.
D.P. Marshall Jr.
United States District Judge
• There is no need to delay the transfer because both courts are within
the Eighth Circuit. In re Nine Mile Ltd., 673 F.2d 242,243 (8th Cir. 1982).
