Judge Sue L. Robinson: Transfer DENIED

Following the recent trend in this district, Judge Robinson denied a defendant's motion to transfer litigation related to a licensing dispute, even where the current litigation is the "mirror image" of litigation pending in the Northern District California. Myriad Group A.G. v. Oracle America, Inc., C.A. No. 10-187-SLR, Memo. Order (D. Del. Feb. 4, 2011). The court found that the Jumara factors do not warrant transfer, particularly where the defendant is a Delaware corporation and "especially in this age of electronic discovery and the ever decreasing number of cases actually resolved by trial." Id. at 5.
