UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. 2:13-cv-1518 TLN KJN P
J. SUITON, et al.,
Plaintiff is a state prisoner presently housed at the Los Angeles County Jail. Plaintiff is
proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis. By order filed August 27, 2014, this action was
reopened, and remanded for screening of plaintiff’s amended complaint. (ECF No. 33.)
First, the court notes that plaintiff filed a motion for “appropriate settlement” on August
21, 2014. (ECF No. 32.) Plaintiff’s motion is premature. Defendants have not yet been served.
Thus, plaintiff’s motion is denied without prejudice.
Second, plaintiff’s amended complaint names as defendants the following individuals: J.
Suiton, K. Carpentor, and F. Feliciano, all employees at Wasco State Prison in Wasco, California,
and contends that these defendants failed to transfer plaintiff away from Wasco where plaintiff
was at risk of contracting Valley Fever because plaintiff suffers from a medical condition that
suppresses his immunity. In light of this amendment, the Clerk of the Court is directed to list
J. Suiton, K. Carpentor, and F. Feliciano as defendants herein, and to terminate the individuals
previously named as defendants.
Third, plaintiff alleges violations of his civil rights by the defendants employed at Wasco
State Prison. The alleged violations took place in Kern County, which is part of the Fresno
Division of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. See Local Rule
Pursuant to Local Rule 120(f), a civil action which has not been commenced in the proper
division of a court may, on the court’s own motion, be transferred to the proper division of the
court. Therefore, this action will be transferred to the Fresno Division of the court
Good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff’s motion (ECF No. 32) is denied without prejudice;
2. The Clerk of the Court is directed to list J. Suiton, K. Carpentor, and F. Feliciano as
defendants herein, and terminate the individuals previously named as defendants;
3. This action is transferred to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
California sitting in Fresno; and
