In his complaint, petitioner alleges deliberate 22 indifference to his medical needs. Id. The alleged violations took place in Merced County, which 23 is part of the Fresno Division of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of 24 California. See Local Rule 120(d). Pursuant to Local Rule 120(f), a civil action which has not been commenced in the proper 25 26 division of a court may, on the court’s own motion, be transferred to the proper division of the 27 court. Therefore, this action will be transferred to the Fresno Division of the court. 28 //// 1 1 Good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 2 1.
