ORDER signed by Magistrate Judge Kendall J. Newman on 1/18/2017 TRANSFERRING this matter to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California - Fresno Division. New Case Number 1:17-cv-00078 SKO (SS). Old Case Number 2:15-cv-02575 KJN (SS). CASE CLOSED. (Michel, G.)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
MARK RICHARD WELLS,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
Plaintiff Mark Wells, represented by counsel, initially commenced this social security
action in the Sacramento division of this district. (ECF No. 1.) However, upon closer review, the
complaint alleges that plaintiff is a resident of Porterville, California, which is located in Tulare
County. Thus, the action should have been commenced in the Fresno division of this district.
See E.D. Cal. L.R. 120(d). As such, transfer of the action to the Fresno division is appropriate.
E.D. Cal. L.R. 120(f).
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action is TRANSFERRED to the
Fresno division of this district.
