UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
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
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.
