Thomas v. State of California, et al.,
ORDER OF TRANSFER (Illston, Susan) (Filed on 7/17/2012)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
BRANDON C. THOMAS,
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
No. C 12-3584 SI (pr)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
Warden; et al.,
Brandon C. Thomas filed this civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, complaining of
events or omissions that occurred at the California Rehabilitation Center in Norco, where he
currently is incarcerated. Norco is in Riverside County, which is within the venue of the Central
District of California. The individual defendants work at the prison in Norco and apparently
reside within the venue of the Central District of California. Venue is proper in the Central
District of California. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b)(2). The witnesses and evidence likely will be
found primarily in the Central District as that is the district in which the events and omissions
occurred and the plaintiff is incarcerated. Accordingly, for the convenience of the parties and
witnesses, and in the interest of justice, this action is now transferred to the Central District of
California. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1404(a).
The clerk shall transfer this matter forthwith.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 17, 2012
