The acts complained of occurred at the California Medical Facility, which is located in the Eastern District of California, and it appears that the Defendants reside in that district.

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 of the Court shall transfer the case forthwith. Plaintiff's application for in forma pauperis is TERMINATED as moot. IT IS SO ORDERED.
