NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
VIRGIL DOUGLAS RANDALL,
Case No. 16-cv-03608-MEJ (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
SACRAMENTO STATE PRISONFOLSOM,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Plaintiff has filed a pro se civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 complaining of
conditions at California State Prison–Sacramento (“CSP-SAC”). CSP-SAC is located in
Sacramento County within the venue of the Eastern District of California. See 28 U.S.C. § 84(b).
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 is proper in the Eastern District, and
not in this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b).
Accordingly, in the interests of justice and pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a), this action is
TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. The
Clerk of the Court is directed to transfer the case forthwith. In view of the transfer, the Court will
not rule upon plaintiff’s request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 6, 2016
