UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
RONALD LEE CANADA,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 17-cv-03539-JST (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
Ronald Lee Canada, an inmate at Kern Valley State Prison, filed this pro se civil rights
action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, complaining about events and omissions that took place at the
California Medical Facility in Vacaville, where he was previously housed. Vacaville is in Solano
County, which is within the venue of the Eastern District of California. No defendant is alleged to
reside in, and none of the events or omissions giving rise to the complaint occurred in, the
Northern District of California. Venue therefore would be proper in the Eastern District of
California and not in this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Accordingly, in the interests of justice
and pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a), this action is TRANSFERRED to the United States District
Court for the Eastern District of California. The Clerk shall transfer this matter.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: June 27, 2017
JON S. TIGAR
