SONNY BARGER, II,
aka GARY FRANCIS FISHER,
aka GARY DALE BARGER,
Case No. 17-cv-00905-WHO (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
United States District Court
Northern District of California
DIRECTOR OF OPS OF CDCR, et al.,
Plaintiff Sonny Barger’s allegations in this federal civil rights action are based on
events that occurred in Kern and Kings Counties, both of which lie in the Eastern District
of California. (There are claims related to events in Ventura County, which lies in the
Central District. Whether such claims remain part of this action is a discretionary decision
for the receiving court.) Accordingly, this action is TRANSFERRED to the Eastern
District of California wherein venue properly lies because a substantial part of the events
or omissions giving rise to the claims occurred, and the majority of the named defendants
reside, in the Eastern District. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 84(b), 1391(b), and 1406(a). The Clerk
shall transfer this action forthwith.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: March 22, 2017
WILLIAM H. ORRICK
United States District Judge
