Huerta v. Virga
ORDER OF TRANSFER (Illston, Susan) (Filed on 10/26/2017)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 17-cv-06008-SI
ORDER OF TRANSFER
Re: Dkt. No. 1
Plaintiff, an inmate at the California Health Care Facility in Stockton, filed this civil rights
action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, complaining about events and omissions that occurred at the
California State Prison - Sacramento in Represa, California, located in Sacramento County.
Sacramento County is within the venue of the Eastern District of California. The lone defendant
works at the prison in Represa and apparently resides in 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. Venue therefore would be proper in the Eastern District and not
in this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Accordingly, in the interest 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 matter.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: October 26, 2017
