Judge Joseph J. Farnan, Jr.: Motion to Transfer DENIED Despite Similar Cases Pending in Illinois

By

Despite similar cases pending in the Northern District of Illinois, Judge Farnan declined to transfer the case out of Delaware. Stored Value Solutions, Inc. v. Card Activation Technologies, Inc., C.A. No. 09-495-JJF, Memo. Op. (D. Del. Nov. 20, 2009). The Court found that the co-pending cases in Illinois are distributed among five different judges and therefore transferring the case to Illinois would not “increase efficiency over what it is currently.” Id. at 8. The fact that a proposed claim construction decision existed, also did not change the Court’s opinion “because the construction was not adopted and related to different parties.” Id. at 8-9.
