For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 14-1479 PJH (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
WHITTEN, et. al.,
This is a civil rights case brought pro se by a state prisoner. Plaintiff states that his
personal property was missing following his transfer from California Medical Facility to
Deuel Vocational Institute. Named as defendants are several officials at California Medical
Facility. Both of these prisons lie within the venue of the United States District Court for the
Eastern District of California. Venue, therefore, properly lies in that district and not in this
one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b).
This case is TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Eastern
District of California. See 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a). In view of the transfer, the court will not
rule upon plaintiff's request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 2, 2014.
PHYLLIS J. HAMILTON
United States District Judge
