Jenkins v. Donovan

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


January 14, 2009

CHRISTOPHER LEE JENKINS, PLAINTIFF,
v.
R.J. DONOVAN, APPEALS COORDINATOR, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

ORDER

Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel in an action brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983.

A civil action, other than one based on diversity jurisdiction, must be brought in "(1) a judicial district where any defendant resides, if all defendants reside in the same State, (2) a judicial district in which a substantial part of the events or omissions giving rise to the claim occurred, or a substantial part of property that is the subject of the action is situated, or (3) a judicial district in which any defendant may be found, if there is no district in which the action may otherwise be brought." 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b).

Here, most defendants and claim occurred in the R.J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego, California which is in the Southern District of California. 28 U.S.C. § 84(d).

Therefore, in the interest of justice, this action is transferred to the United States District Court for the Southern District of California. See 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a); Starnes v. McGuire, 512 F.2d 918, 932 (D.C. Cir. 1974).

So ordered.
