No. 3:13-00679
Judge Sharp

ORDER

In this employment discrimination action filed by Plaintiff Mawuenda Kodjo, pro se,

Defendant Tyson Foods, Inc. has filed a Motion to Dismiss (Docket No. 11), arguing that this case

should be dismissed pursuant to Rule 12(b)(3) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure for improper

venue and/or for failure to state a claim under Rule 12(b)(6). The Magistrate Judge has entered a

Report and Recommendation recommending that this action be transferred to the Eastern District of

Tennessee because Plaintiff worked for Defendant in a plant located in Bedford County, which is in

that district, and because transferring the case would be in the interest of justice within the meaning

of 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a) in light of Plaintiff’s pro se status. No objections have been filed and the Court

agrees with the recommended disposition.

Accordingly, the Report and Recommendation (Docket No. 14) is hereby ACCEPTED and

APPROVED. The Clerk of the Court shall TRANSFER this action to the United States District Court

for the Eastern District of Tennessee.

It is SO ORDERED.
