Avila v. Commissioner of Social Security
ORDER signed by Magistrate Judge Kendall J. Newman on 3/23/2017 ORDERING this case TRANSFERRRED to the Fresno Division. New Case Number 1:17-cv-0420 EPG. Old Case Number 2:16-cv-0413 KJN. (Donati, J)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
LORRAINE MARIE AVILA,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
Plaintiff Lorraine Marie Avila, 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 Hanford, California, which is located in
Kings 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.
