Whirl v. Wexford Health Sources, Inc. et al
MEMORANDUM Order: Signed by the Honorable Milton I. Shadur on 2/7/2017. Mailed notice (mmy, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
KEMO D. WHIRL (B-55932),
WEXFORD HEALTH SOURCES, INC.,
Case No. 17 C 926
This action, originally filed by pro se plaintiff Kemo Whirl ("Whirl") in the Circuit Court
of the Fourth Judicial Circuit, Marion County, Illinois, was timely removed by Susan Tuell, the
only then-served defendant, to the United States District Court for the Southern District of
Illinois. That court has in turn transferred the action to this United States District Court for the
Northern District of Illinois, and this District's computerized random assignment system has
delivered the action to this Court's calendar.
But it requires only a brief look at the papers in the case to see that the events that
constitute the gravamen of Whirl's Complaint occurred at Dixon Correctional Center, which is
located in Lee County and thus in the Western Division, not this Eastern Division, of the
Northern District of Illinois. Accordingly this Court sua sponte transfers this action to the
Western Division of this District Court (see 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a)), and the Clerk of Court is
directed to transfer the Complaint and other pleadings to that Division forthwith.
Date: February 7, 2017
Milton I. Shadur
Senior United States District Judge
