1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 MIGUEL ANGEL NEGRON, Plaintiff, 8 ORDER OF TRANSFER 9 v. 10 V. WHITE, et al., 11 United States District Court Northern District of California Case No. 21-cv-01070-SI Defendants. 12 13 Plaintiff, an inmate at the Deuel Vocational Institution in Tracy, filed this pro se civil rights 14 action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, complaining of acts and omissions at that prison, which is located 15 in San Joaquin County, and at the California State Prison – Solano, which is located in Solano 16 County. Both of those counties are within the venue of the Eastern District of California. The 17 defendants work at those prisons and apparently reside in the Eastern District of California. No 18 defendant is alleged to reside in, and none of the events or omissions giving rise to the complaint 19 are alleged to have occurred in, the Northern District. Venue therefore would be proper in the 20 Eastern District, and not in this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Accordingly, in the interest of justice 21 and pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a), this action is TRANSFERRED to the United States District 22 Court for the Eastern District of California. The clerk shall transfer this matter. 23 24 25 26 27 28 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: February 17, 2021 ______________________________________ SUSAN ILLSTON United States District Judge
