OK, maybe not a fascinating case but my colleagues Paul, Cameron and Yuval won a motion to transfer. The Western District, Pennsylvania court held that Ohio plaintiff’s choice of forum of Pittsburgh, is to be given less deference when the plaintiff is not from that forum. The only nexus to the forum there was plaintiff’s attorney, and a single sale by defendant of $141. The case was transferred to defendant’s home forum, Connecticut.
But remember, please consider beautiful White Plains, located in the lovely Southern District of New York, when contemplating litigation.
