(ECF Nos. 1, 2.) 20 In his complaint, Plaintiff alleges violations of his civil rights by employees at California 21 Health Care Facility in Stockton, California. (ECF No. 1, p. 1.) The alleged violations occurred in 22 San Joaquin County, which is part of the Sacramento Division of the United States District Court 23 for the Eastern District of California. Therefore, the complaint should have been filed in the 24 Sacramento Division. 25 Under Local Rule 120(f), a court may on its own motion transfer a civil action that has not 26 been commenced in the proper court to the proper court. Therefore, the Court will transfer this 27 action to the Sacramento Division, and will not rule on Plaintiff's request to proceed in forma 28 pauperis. 1 1 Good cause appearing, the Court HEREBY ORDERS that: 2 1. This action is transferred to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of 3 4 5 California sitting in Sacramento; and 2.
