Judge Sue L. Robinson: Motion to Transfer (DENIED)

By

Judge Robinson denied Ruckus Wireless’ motion to tranfer this patent infringement case to the Northern District of California where another suit (on different, unrelated patents) is pending between the parties. Netgear, Inc. v. Ruckus Wireless, Inc., C.A. No. 10-999-SLR, Memo. Order (D. Del. July 28, 2011). Both parties are Delaware corporations with their principal place of business in California. Therefore the main issue was whether the pending action in California was “related” to the pending Delaware action and therefore warranted transfer. Id. The asserted patents in the Delaware case “originated from different companies, have different inventors, and are of different patent families from patents-in-suit.” Id. The Court found the fact that similar technology was at issue “not compelling” to warrant transfer. Id.
