Robinson v. Castellon et al
ORDER TRANSFERRING CASE. Signed by Magistrate Judge Maria-Elena James on 12/04/2017. (Attachments: # 1 Certificate/Proof of Service)(rmm2S, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 12/4/2017)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 17-cv-06764-MEJ (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
R. CASTELLON, et al.,
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
events at the Deuel Vocational Institution (“DVI”). DVI is located in San Joaquin 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).
Plaintiff properly filed his case in the Easter District, but the Eastern District transferred
the case to this court in the mistaken belief that DVI is in Alameda County. Accordingly, in the
interests of justice and pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a), this action is TRANSFERRED back 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: December 4, 2017
