Case No. 17-cv-04784-MEJ (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
A. DEANDA, et al.,
Plaintiff has filed a pro se civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 complaining of
events at California Medical Facility (“CMF”). CMF is located in Solano 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.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: August 29, 2017
