Pragmatus AV, LLC v. Yahoo! Inc.,C.A. No. 11-902-LPS-CJB, January 16, 2013
Stark, J. Objections to Report and Recommendation are overruled.
On October 15, 2012, the magistrate judge recommended that defendant’s motion to transfer be denied. Defendant filed objections and briefing was completed on November 12, 2012. The objections were overruled. The court considered the motion de novo and agreed with the magistrate judge that (1) location of witnesses weighs only slightly in favor of transfer, (2) practical considerations did not weigh in favor of transfer, and (3) the Jumara factors were properly balanced. There would be a net loss of efficiency if the case were transferred now.
