Oroville is in Butte County, and that county is within the venue of the Eastern District of California. See 28 U.S.C. 84(b). Defendants are employees at the jail, the municipality in which the jail is located, and Governor Schwarzenegger; all apparently reside in the Eastern District of California. Venue therefore properly lies in that district and not in this one. See 28 U.S.C. 1391(b). Accordingly, in the interest of justice and pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1406(a), these four actions are TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. The clerk shall transfer these matters forthwith. IT IS SO ORDERED. DATED: September 26, 2008 Marilyn Hall Patel United States District Judge
