PUPPY PROGRAM; et al., Defendants. / 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Sandra Johnson filed this civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, complaining that she was bit by a dog in the puppy program at the California Institute for Women in Corona. That facility is in Riverside County, and within the venue of the Central District of California. Some or all of the defendants apparently reside in the Central 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 Central 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 Central District of California. The clerk shall transfer this matter. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: March 21, 2013 ______________________ SUSAN ILLSTON United States District Judge
