This is a civil rights case brought pro se by a state prisoner incarcerated at Wasco State

they took while he was in the custody of the Riverside County Sheriff. Riverside County is
located within the venue of the United States District Court for the Central District of
California. Venue for this case is therefore proper in the Central District. See 28 U.S.C. 1391.
Accordingly, and in the interests of justice, this case is TRANSFERRED to the United States
District Court for the Central District of California. See 28 U.S.C. 1404(a), 1406(a). Ruling on
plaintiff’s application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis (dkt. 2, 6) is deferred to the
Central District. The clerk shall transfer this matter forthwith.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
