Huggins et al
ORDER directing the Clerk of Court to transfer this case immediately to the United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas. Signed by Magistrate Judge Beth Deere on 9/10/2020. (jbh)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CASE NO. 4:20-CV-1076-BSM-BD
On September 9, 2020, Ron Huggins, an Arkansas Division of Correction (ADC)
inmate, filed this civil rights lawsuit without the help of a lawyer. (Doc. No. 2) Mr.
Huggins claims that Nurse Weighland failed to provide him with adequate medical care
when he was incarcerated at the Ouachita River Unit of the ADC.
The Ouachita River Unit lies in the Western District of Arkansas. The interests of
justice, therefore, 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). To that
end, the Clerk of Court is directed to transfer this case immediately to the United States
District Court for the Western District of Arkansas.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 10th day of September, 2020.
