UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
September 10, 2009
JACK L. HUDDLESTON, JR., PLAINTIFF,
ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD COMPANY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
This matter comes before the Court for case management purposes. The Court notes the incidents giving rise to Counts I, II and V took place in Rantoul, Illinois, or Champaign, Illinois, both of which are within the Central District of Illinois. Furthermore, there is no indication that substantial parts of the exposure alleged in Counts III and IV occurred in the Southern District of Illinois. This leads the Court to doubt whether this case belongs in this judicial district. For this reason, the Court ORDERS plaintiff Jack L. Huddleston, Jr. to SHOW CAUSE on or before October 2, 2009, why the Court should not transfer this case to the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a). The defendant shall have ten days to reply to the plaintiff's response to this order to show cause.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
