YOUNG YIL JO, Plaintiff, vs. SIX UNKNOWN NAMES AGENTS, et al., Defendants. /
1:09-cv-00577-OWW-GSA-(PC) ORDER DISMISSING ACTION
Plaintiff Young Yil Jo ("plaintiff") is a prisoner in federal custody at the Federal Correctional Institution in Greenville, Illinois. To date, plaintiff has filed more than 120 civil cases in this district. Twelve of the cases were transferred to the United States District Court for Minnesota because venue was improper in this district.1 Based on those transfers, plaintiff was placed on notice that cases in which he named as defendants T. C. Outlaw, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, John Ashcroft, and/or Janet Reno should not be filed in this district.

Plaintiff has begun to file new cases naming "Six Unknown Agents" as defendants. Plaintiff's allegations, however, are the same as those in which he previously named Bush, Clinton, Ashcroft, et. al. Plaintiff's persistence in filing cases in this district despite the lack of proper venue is in bad faith and is vexatious.2 For this reason, the court declines to transfer this case and shall instead dismiss it, without prejudice. Costlow v. Weeks, 790 F.2d 1486, 1488 (9th Cir. 1986) (court may raise defective venue sua sponte). Accordingly, this action is HEREBY ORDERED DISMISSED, without prejudice, for lack of
