(ECF No. 1.) However, upon closer review, the 20 complaint alleges that plaintiff is a resident of Porterville, California, which is located in Tulare 21 County. Thus, the action should have been commenced in the Fresno division of this district. 22 See E.D. Cal. L.R. 120(d). As such, transfer of the action to the Fresno division is appropriate. 23 E.D. Cal. L.R. 120(f). 24 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action is TRANSFERRED to the 25 Fresno division of this district. 26 Dated: January 18, 2017 27 28 1
