UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
EZRA JOHN ADAMS,
Case No. 16-cv-7240-NJV (PR)
United States District Court
Northern District of California
ORDER VACATING PRIOR ORDER,
REPOPENING CASE AND
Dkt. Nos. 4, 9
The court's order of February 28, 2017, dismissing this case was entered in error.
Accordingly, that order is HEREBY VACATED and the Clerk shall reopen the case.
This is a civil rights case brought pro se by a state prisoner. Plaintiff raises claims
regarding property that was seized during his 1988 prosecution in San Diego County Superior
Court. The only defendant is a Sheriff in San Diego County. San Diego County lies within the
venue of the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. Venue, therefore,
properly lies in that district and not in this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). This case is
TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. See
28 U.S.C. § 1406(a). The motions to proceed in forma pauperis (Docket Nos. 4, 9) are
VACATED as moot.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: February 28, 2017
NANDOR J. VADAS
United States Magistrate Judge
