1 2 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 3 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 4 5 CRAIG ERICK SIMONSON, Case No. 16-cv-00745-JST (PR) Plaintiff, 6 v. ORDER OF TRANSFER 7 8 9 STANISLAUS COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT, et al., Defendants. 10 United States District Court Northern District of California 11 Plaintiff, an inmate at the Public Safety Center in Modesto, California, has filed a pro se 12 civil rights complaint under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department 13 and two of its officers. Stanislaus County is within the venue of the Eastern District of California, 14 and the witnesses apparently would be found in the Eastern District of California as that is the 15 location of the acts or omissions complained of by plaintiff. No defendant is alleged to reside in, 16 and none of the events or omissions giving rise to the complaint occurred in, the Northern District. 17 Venue therefore would be proper in the Eastern District of California, and not in this one. See 28 18 U.S.C. § 1391(b). 19 Accordingly, in the interest of justice and pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a), this action is 20 TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. In view 21 of the transfer, the Court will not rule upon plaintiff’s pending motion to proceed in forma 22 pauperis (Docket No. 2). 23 The Clerk shall transfer this matter. 24 IT IS SO ORDERED. 25 26 27 28 Dated: March 1, 2016 ______________________________________ JON S. TIGAR United States District Judge
