Bills v. Oklahoma, State of
ORDER directing the Clerk of the Court to immediately transfer Plaintiff's entire case file to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma. Signed by Judge Susan Webber Wright on 4/29/2016. (ljb)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
NO: 4:16CV00192 SWW
STATE OF OKLAHOMA
Plaintiff has submitted this 42 U.S.C. §1983 case for filing in this district. However, from
the facts alleged and the Defendant named, it appears that venue properly lies in the Northern
District of Oklahoma. See 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
Northern District of Oklahoma. See 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.”).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT the Clerk of the Court is directed to
IMMEDIATELY TRANSFER PLAINTIFF’S ENTIRE CASE FILE to the United States District
Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma.
DATED this 29th day of April, 2016.
