ORDER OF TRANSFER
Case No. 20-cv-08795-EMC
Plaintiff, an inmate at California Medical Facility in Vacaville, filed this pro se civil rights
action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, complaining of acts and omissions at that prison, which is located
in Solano County. Solano County is within the venue of the Eastern District of California. The
lone defendant works at that prison in Solano County 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 are alleged to have 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
IT IS SO ORDERED.
