UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
ANTOINE MARQUISE GENTLE,
Case No. C 14-1233 KAW (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
F. MONTAGO, et al.,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Plaintiff Antoine Marquise Gentle, a state prisoner currently incarcerated at the
High Desert State Prison, has filed a civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983
complaining of his treatment by the medical staff at Deuel Vocational Institution (“DVI”).
Specifically, he alleges that medical staff at DVI violated his constitutional rights by
failing to treat his serious medical need.
The acts complained of in this complaint occurred at DVI, which is located in San
Joaquin County in the Eastern District of California. Venue, therefore, properly lies 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 of the Court shall transfer the case forthwith.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
KANDIS A. WESTMORE
