Chief Judge Sleet Grants Zynga’s Motion to Transfer Patent Infringement Action to Northern District of California

Posted in Intellectual Property, Patent Infringement

By Memorandum Opinion entered by The Honorable Gregory M. Sleet in Segan LLC v. Zynga Inc., Civil Action No. 11-670-GMS (D.Del., March 19, 2014), the Court granted defendant Zynga’s Motion to Transfer the patent infringement action to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. In doing so, the Court found that Zynga met its burden of demonstrating that the interests of justice and convenience strongly favored transfer and that, of the Jumara factors, only plaintiff’s forum preference weighed against transfer. See id. at 3-9.

A copy of the Memorandum Opinion is attached.
