(ECF No. 2). 1 1 28 1 In this case, it does not appear that there is any Defendant located in this District. 2 Moreover, the claims arise in Riverside County, which is in the Central District of California. 3 Therefore, Plaintiff’s complaint should have been filed in the United States District Court for the 4 Central District of California. In the interest of justice, a federal court may transfer a complaint 5 filed in the wrong district to the correct district. 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a). 6 7 8 Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that this matter is transferred to the United States District Court for the Central District of California. IT IS SO ORDERED. 9 10 Dated: July 9, 2024 /s/ UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
