1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 JAM'BRI SEAN JOHNSON, Case No. 14-cv-03731-JST (PR) United States District Court Northern District of California Plaintiff, 12 v. ORDER OF TRANSFER 13 14 ERIC ARNOLDS, Defendant. 15 16 17 This case was opened when plaintiff, who is incarcerated at California State Prison – 18 Solano ("CSP-Solano") in Vacaville, California, filed a document entitled, "Petition for Writ of 19 Habeas Corpus." Plaintiff has also filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis ("IFP"). 20 Plaintiff's various complaints, however, allege civil rights claims in that he complains 21 about the conditions of his confinement rather than the fact of his confinement or the length of it. 22 Specifically, he complains that CSP-Solano officials have imposed restrictions on his non-contact 23 visits with minors, thereby denying him visitation with his five sons. 24 CSP-Solano is located within the venue of the United States District Court for the Eastern 25 District of California. Venue for civil rights claims concerning the conditions of confinement at 26 CSP-Solano therefore lies in that district. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391. Accordingly, and in the interests 27 of justice, this case is TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern District 28 of California. See §§ 28 U.S.C. 1404(a), 1406(a). The Clerk shall transfer this matter forthwith. 1 In view of the transfer, the Court will not rule upon plaintiff's request for leave to proceed 2 IFP. Because it has construed this case as a civil rights action, the Court directs the Clerk to re- 3 code this case under the following nature of suit: "555 Prisoner: Prison Condition." 4 5 6 7 IT IS SO ORDERED.
