When jurisdiction is not founded solely on diversity, venue is proper in the district in which (1) any defendant resides, if all of the defendants reside in the same State, (2) the district in which a substantial part of the events or omissions giving rise to the claim occurred, or a substantial part of property that is the subject of the action is situated, or (3) a judicial district in which any defendant may be found, if there is no district in which the action may otherwise be brought. See 28 U.S.C. 1391(b). The acts complained of occurred at Harris County, which is located in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas. Venue, therefore, properly lies in that district and not in this one.
