A. GARCIA, et al., 15 Defendant. 16 Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed a civil rights action pursuant to 42 17 18 U.S.C. § 1983. The federal venue statute requires that a civil action, other than one based on diversity 19 20 jurisdiction, be brought only in “(1) a judicial district where any defendant resides, if all 21 defendants are residents of the State in which the district is located, (2) a judicial district in which 22 a substantial part of the events or omissions giving rise to the claim occurred, or a substantial part 23 of the property that is the subject of the action is situated, or (3) if there is no district in which an 24 action may otherwise be brought as provided in this section, any judicial district in which any 25 defendant is subject to the court’s personal jurisdiction with respect to such action.” 28 U.S.C. § 26 1391(b). 27 /// 28 /// 1 1 In this case, none of the defendants reside in this district. The claim arose in Monterey 2 County, which is in the Northern District of California. Therefore, plaintiff’s claim should have 3 been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. In the 4 interest of justice, a federal court may transfer a complaint filed in the wrong district to the 5 correct district. See 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a); Starnes v. McGuire, 512 F.2d 918, 932 (D.C. Cir. 6 1974). 7 8 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter is transferred to the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. 9 10 11 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: June 3, 2024 UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
