Green v. Wise et al
ORDER directing the Clerk to immediately transfer the entire case file to the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas. Signed by Judge Kristine G. Baker on 1/22/14. (kpr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
No: 4:13-cv-00600 KGB/HDY
ROGER WISE, et al.
Plaintiff Michael Green has submitted a complaint alleging claims under 42 U.S.C.
§1983 for filing in this district. However, from the facts alleged and the defendants named in the
complaint, it appears that 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 to the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas. 28
U.S.C. § 1406(a) (“The district court of a district in which is filed a case laying venue in the
wrong division or district shall dismiss, or if it be in the interest of justice, transfer such case to
any district or division in which it could have been brought.”).
The Clerk of the Court is directed to transfer immediately Mr. Green’s entire case file to
the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas.
SO ORDERED this the 22nd day of January, 2014.
Kristine G. Baker
United States District Judge
