Patterson v. Leslie

United States District Court, Ninth Circuit

June 24, 2013

VESTER LEE PATTERSON, Plaintiff,
v.
DEBORAH E. LESLIE, et al., Defendants.

ORDER

EDMUND F. BRENNAN, Magistrate Judge.

Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel in an action brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 against officials at the Los Angeles County Jail. He requests leave to proceed in forma pauperis.

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). Because Los Angeles County lies within the venue of the Central District of California, venue properly lies in that district and not in this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b); 28 U.S.C. § 84(c)(2).

Accordingly, this case is transferred to the United States District Court for the Central District of California. See 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a).

So ordered.
