Randle v. Owens et al
ORDER directing the Clerk of Court to immediately transfer Plaintiff's entire case file to the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee. Signed by Judge James M. Moody Jr. on 3/30/2021. (ljb) [Transferred from Arkansas Eastern on 3/31/2021.]
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
OWENS, et al.
Plaintiff has submitted this case for filing in this district. However, from the facts alleged
and the Defendants named, it appears that venue properly lies in the Western District of Tennessee.
See 28 U.S.C. §1391(b). Accordingly, the Court finds that the interests of justice would best be
served by transferring this case to the United States District Court for the Western District of
Tennessee. See 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a) (“The district court of a district in which is filed a case laying
venue in the wrong division or district shall dismiss, or if it be in the interest of justice, transfer
such case to any district or division in which it could have been brought.”).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT the Clerk of the Court is directed to
IMMEDIATELY TRANSFER PLAINTIFF’S ENTIRE CASE FILE to the United States District
Court for the Western District of Tennessee.
DATED this 30th day of March, 2021.
