Johnson v. Puppy Program et al
ORDER OF TRANSFER (Illston, Susan) (Filed on 3/21/2013) (Additional attachment(s) added on 3/21/2013: # 1 Certificate/Proof of Service) (tfS, COURT STAFF).
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
No. C 13-1228 SI (pr)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
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
