The prison is in Santa 17 Barbara County, which is located within the venue of the Central District of California. One 18 individual defendant is the warden of the prison and apparently resides in Santa Barbara County. No 19 defendant is alleged to reside in, and none of the events or omissions giving rise to the complaint 20 occurred in, the Northern District of California. Venue therefore would be proper in the Central 21 District, and not in this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Accordingly, in the interest of justice and 22 pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a), this action is TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court 23 for the Central District of California.
