1 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 3 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 4 JEFFREY LAMONT TAYLOR, No. C 14-3183 TEH (PR) 5 Plaintiff, ORDER OF TRANSFER 6 v. 7 R. LANKFORD, et al., 8 Defendants. 9 ________________________________/ No. C 14-3184 TEH (PR) United States District Court For the Northern District of California 10 JEFFREY LAMONT TAYLOR, 12 ORDER OF TRANSFER Plaintiff, 11 v. OFFICER MORRIS, et al., 13 Defendants. / 14 No. C 14-3185 TEH (PR) 15 JEFFREY LAMONT TAYLOR, ORDER OF TRANSFER 16 17 Plaintiff, v. 18 OFFICER WALKER, et al., 19 Defendants. / 20 21 On July 15, 2014, Plaintiff Jeffrey Lamont Taylor, a 22 California prisoner incarcerated at the California Substance Abuse 23 Treatment Facility, filed three petitions for a writ of habeas 24 corpus designated case numbers C 14-3183 TEH (PR), C 14-3184 TEH 25 (PR), and C 14-3185 TEH (PR). 26 Plaintiff's various complaints, however, allege civil 27 rights claims in that he complains about the conditions of his 28 confinement rather than the fact of his confinement or the length of 1 it. Specifically, he complains of deliberate indifference to his 2 serious medical needs and disability discrimination. 3 The acts complained of in the three actions occurred at 4 High Desert State Prison, which is located in Lassen County in the 5 Eastern District of California, and at California State Prison, 6 Corcoran, which is located in Kings County, also in the Eastern 7 District of California. Venue, therefore, properly lies in the 8 Eastern District and not in this one. 9 See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Accordingly, and in the interests of justice, the actions 10 are TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern 11 District of California. See §§ 28 U.S.C. 1404(a), 1406(a). The 12 Clerk shall transfer the files forthwith. 13 Because it has construed the actions as civil rights 14 actions, the Court further directs the Clerk to re-code the actions 15 under the following nature of suit: "555 Prisoner: Prison 16 Condition." 17 IT IS SO ORDERED. 18 19 20 DATED 07/22/2014 THELTON E.
