Mule Creek is located in the city 16 of Ione, California. Ione is in Amador County, which is located within the venue of the Eastern 17 District of California. The defendants work at that prison, and apparently reside in the Eastern 18 District of California. No defendant is alleged to reside in, and none of the events or omissions 19 giving rise to the complaint occurred in, the Northern District. Venue therefore would be proper in 20 the Eastern District, and not in this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Accordingly, in the interest of 21 justice and pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a), this action is TRANSFERRED to the United States 22 District Court for the Eastern District of California. The Clerk shall transfer this matter. 23 IT IS SO ORDERED. 24 25 Dated: February 5, 2013 26 27 28 _________________________ EDWARD M. CHEN United States District Judge
