Authority For Civil Cover Sheet
'1`he J S-44 civil cover sheet and the information contained herein neither replaces nor supplements the filings and service of pleading or other papers as
required by law, except as provided by local rules of court. This form, approved by the Judicial Conference ofthe United States in September 1974, is

use only the full name or standard abbreviations. lf the plaintiff or defendant is an official within a govermnent agency, identify first the agency and then
the official, giving both name and title.
(b.) County of Residence. For each civil case filed, except U.S. plaintiff cases, enter the name ofthe county where the first listed plaintiff resides
at the time of filing. In U.S. plaintiff cases, enter the name ofthe county in which the first listed defendant resides at the time of filing. (N OTE: In land
condemnation cases, the county of residence of the "defendant" is the location of the tract of land involved.)

noting in this section "(see attachment)".

V. Origin. Place an "X" in one ofthe seven boxes.
Original Proceedings. (1) Cases which originate in the United States district courts.

multidistrict litigation transfers.
