J. JONES, Defendant. 12 13 Ronald Lee Canada, an inmate at Kern Valley State Prison, filed this pro se civil rights 14 action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, complaining about events and omissions that took place at the 15 California Medical Facility in Vacaville, where he was previously housed. Vacaville is in Solano 16 County, which is within the venue of the Eastern District of California. No defendant is alleged to 17 reside in, and none of the events or omissions giving rise to the complaint occurred in, the 18 Northern District of California. Venue therefore would be proper in the Eastern District of 19 California and not in this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Accordingly, in the interests of justice 20 and pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a), this action is TRANSFERRED to the United States District 21 Court for the Eastern District of California.
