ORDER OF TRANSFER
DR. COLLIN MBANUGO,
Plaintiff, a state prisoner, has filed a pro se civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983
and an application for in forma pauperis status. The acts complained of occurred while he was
incarcerated at California State Prison - Solano, which is located in the Eastern District of
California, and it appears that Defendant resides in that district. Venue, therefore, properly lies in
that 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 of the Court shall transfer the case forthwith. All pending motions are TERMINATED on this
Court's docket as no longer pending in this district.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
