RUBEN MIJEL CHAVIRA,
D.W. BELL, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Claudia Wilken United States District Judge
Plaintiff, a state prisoner, has filed the above pro se civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff is incarcerated at Kern Valley State Prison, which is located in Kern County in the Eastern District of California. See 28 U.S.C. § 84(b). The acts complained of occurred at Calipatria State Prison, which is located in Imperial Valley in the Southern District of California. 28 U.S.C. § 84(d). 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 Southern District of California.
The Clerk of the Court shall transfer the case forthwith. IT IS SO ORDERED.
