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


November 18, 2011

VESTER LEE PATTERSON, PLAINTIFF,
v.
CARLA ZUNIGA, 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 are located in and the claim arose in Los Angeles, California which is in the Western Division of the Central District of California. 28 U.S.C. § 84(c)(2).

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.
