United States District Court
Northern District of California
ORDER OF TRANSFER
Case No. 17-cv-03197-JST (PR)
Ronald Lee Canada, an inmate at the California Medical Facility in Vacaville, filed this
pro se civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, complaining about events and omissions at that
prison. Vacaville is in Solano County, which is within the venue of the Eastern District of
California. No defendant is alleged to reside in, and none of the events or omissions giving rise to
the complaint occurred in, the Northern District of California. Venue therefore would be proper in
the Eastern District of California 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 shall transfer this
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: June 13, 2017
