UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
TIANTE DION SCOTT,
Case No. 17-cv-03518-YGR (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
DR. OLGA BEREGOVSKAY, et al.,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
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 at North Kern State Prison, which is located in the
Eastern District of California, and it appears that Defendants reside 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.
Dated: August 24, 2017
YVONNE GONZALEZ ROGERS
United States District Court Judge
