UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 17-cv-05732-YGR (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
SCOTT KERNAN, 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 California
State Prison - Corcoran, 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: November 6, 2017
