PAYNES v. RUNNELS

United States District Court, N.D. California


LORENZO CARL PAYNES, Plaintiff,
v.
D.L. RUNNELS; et al., Defendants.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: SUSAN ILLSTON, District Judge

ORDER OF TRANSFER

Lorenzo Carl Paynes filed this pro se civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, complaining of acts and omissions at High Desert State Prison in Susanville, which is in Lassen County. Lassen County is within the venue of the Eastern District of California. Defendants also apparently reside in the Eastern District of California. 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 shall transfer this matter.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
