UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
January 4, 2008
TIMOTHY DOYLE YOUNG, PLAINTIFF,
UNITED STATES, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Townes, United States District Judge:
MEMORANDUM and ORDER
By Order dated December 10, 2007, this Court transferred this matter to the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. See 28 U.S.C. § § 85; 1406(a) (district court may transfer case filed in the wrong district to any district in which it could have been brought).
Plaintiff challenges this Court's transfer order. Pursuant to the venue provision governing federal question jurisdiction, this action must be filed in the judicial district where defendants reside or where a substantial part of the events or omissions giving rise to the claim occurred. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Plaintiff is a federal prisoner incarcerated at the United States Penitentiary ("USP") in Florence, Colorado. Here, none of the events alleged occurred within the Eastern District of New York. Rather, a substantial part of the events giving rise to the claim occurred at the USP in Florence, Colorado which is located in the District of Colorado.
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED, ADJUDGED, and DECREED, that plaintiff's motion to vacate the transfer order is DENIED.
