No. C-13-1072 EMC (pr)
DUSTIN WITT; et al.,
ORDER OF TRANSFER
Plaintiff, an inmate at the Merced County Jail, filed this pro se civil action, complaining of
events and omissions that occurred during his arrest and incarceration in Merced County. Merced
County is located within the venue of the Eastern District of California. Defendants are members of
the Merced Police Department and Merced County Sheriff's Department, and apparently reside in
the Eastern District of California. No Defendant is alleged to reside in, and none of the events or
omissions giving rise to the complaint occurred in, the Northern District. Venue therefore would be
proper in the Eastern 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), this action is TRANSFERRED to the United
States District Court for the Eastern District of California. The Clerk shall transfer this matter.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: March 14, 2013
