Trebas v. Schwarzenegger

May 19, 2009

DANIEL TREBAS, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
v.
ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.



ORDER

Plaintiffs are detainees at Atascadero State Hospital 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, plaintiffs' complaint concerns conditions at Atascadero State Hospital in San Luis Obispo, California which is in the Central District of California. 28 U.S.C. § 84(c). Therefore, in the interest of justice, this action is transferred to the United States District Court for the Central District of California. See 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a); Starnes v. McGuire, 512 F.2d 918, 932 (D.C. Cir. 1974).

So ordered.
