Gilliam v. Social Security Administration Commissioner
ORDER, that the Plaintiff is to present this Court with proof of her residency in Crawford County, Arkansas on 3/19/12 on or before 7/6/12. Signed by Honorable James R. Marschewski on June 11, 2012. (lw)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
FORT SMITH DIVISION
TERI LYN GILLIAM
CIVIL NO. 12-2057
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, Commissioner
Social Security Administration
Presently before this Court is the Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss for lack of jurisdiction/improper
venue. ECF. No. 6. On March 19, 2012, Plaintiff filed her complaint with this court, alleging that she was
a resident of Crawford County, Arkansas. ECF. No. 1. Defendant contends that Plaintiff actually resides
in Pineville, McDonald County, Missouri, and has done so since at least January 2012. ECF No. 6.
An action brought against the Commissioner for review of a final administrative decision must be
“brought in the district court in the United States for the judicial district in which the plaintiff resides, or has
his principal place of business.” 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). Therefore, if Plaintiff was a resident of McDonald
County, Missouri, at the time of the filing of this suit, this case is not properly before this Court.
Accordingly, Plaintiff is hereby ordered to present this Court with proof of her residency in Crawford
County, Arkansas, on March 19, 2012, on or before July 6, 2012.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 11th day of June 2012.
HON. JAMES R. MARSCHEWSKI
CHIEF UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
