IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
February 1, 2010
THE CONAIR GROUP, INC.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Fullam, Sr. J.
The defendant, Conair Group, has renewed its motion to dismiss or transfer this patent-infringement case, asserting that it should either be dismissed or transferred to the Western District of Pennsylvania. Plaintiff opposes the motion.
Plaintiff is centered in the Baltimore, Maryland area. The defendant is centered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Both parties do business in this District. The materials submitted in support of and in opposition to the defendant's motion make clear that either this District or the Western District of Pennsylvania would have been an appropriate venue for this case, and that neither of the two Districts is obviously preferable to the other. That being so, I see no reason to disturb plaintiff's choice of venue. The defendant's motion will therefore be denied.
An Order follows.
John P. Fullam, Sr. J.
