ORDER OF TRANSFER CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS; et al., 12 13 Defendants. ___________________________________/ 14 15 David Harlow Churchill, a prisoner at California State Prison Solano (“CSP-Solano”), filed 16 this pro se civil action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. He appears to be complaining of events and 17 omissions that occurred at CSP-Solano. CSP-Solano is in Solano County, within the venue of the 18 Eastern District of California. Some or all of the Defendants apparently reside in the Eastern 19 District of California. No Defendant is alleged to reside in, and none of the events or omissions 20 giving rise to the complaint occurred in, the Northern District. Venue therefore would be proper in 21 the Eastern District, and in not this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Accordingly, in the interest of 22 justice and pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a), this action is TRANSFERRED to the United States 23 District Court for the Eastern District of California. The Clerk shall transfer this matter. 24 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: October 25, 2011 26 27 28 _________________________ EDWARD M. CHEN United States District Judge
