Rust is suing several officials located in Tipton County, Indiana, over events that occurred in that county pertaining to a piece of property Rust owns. Tipton County is located within the geographical boundaries of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana. Thus, venue is not proper in this district. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). When a case is filed in the wrong district, the court may transfer the case "to any district or division in which it could have been brought." 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a).
For these reasons, this case is TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana.
