Gomez v. Unknown

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


April 1, 2009

DAVID GOMEZ, PLAINTIFF,
v.
UNKNOWN, DEFENDANT.

ORDER

Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel, and apparently attempting to bring an action 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, it appears that defendants are located in the Salinas Valley State Prison and the claim or claims arose in Soledad, California, which is in the Northern District of California. 28 U.S.C. § 84(a). Therefore, in the interest of justice, this action is transferred to the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. See 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a); Starnes v. McGuire, 512 F.2d 918, 932 (D.C. Cir. 1974).

So ordered.
