SHARON PARKER, et al,

David J. Bradley, Clerk
CIVIL ACTION NO. 3:16-CV-152
ORDER OF TRANSFER
The plaintiff, Scott Hess, alleges in this Section 1983 action that the medical care
provided by the defendants was deficient enough to constitute a violation of the Eighth
Amendment. Although Hess claims that all three defendants reside in Galveston County,
his allegations and grievances indicate that he received the treatment at issue in the
Hightower Unit as part of a sex-offender rehabilitation program (Dkt. 1 at p. 7), either via
video conference with Defendant Sharon Parker (Dkt. 1-1 at p. 3) or in person from
Defendants Landry and Dombrose (Dkt. 1-1 at pp. 11, 15). Hess also claims that
Hightower Unit personnel witnessed him having a nervous breakdown that Defendant
Dombrose refused to treat (Dkt. 1 at p. 3). The Hightower Unit is located in the
Beaumont Division of the Eastern District of Texas. The Court will transfer these claims
to that division. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 124(c)(2), 1391(b), 1404(a).
The Court ORDERS the District Clerk to TRANSFER this case to the United
States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Beaumont Division.
The Clerk will send a copy of this order to the parties.
SIGNED at Galveston, Texas, this 22nd day of August, 2017.
George C. Hanks Jr.
