Worldpak Intern., LLC v. Diablo Valley Packaging, Inc., 2009 WL 1708080(E.D.Tex. Jun 16, 2009) (NO. 4:08CV469)
Judge: Michael Schneider/Amos Mazzant
Holding: Motion to Transfer Venue DENIED
This is a tortious interference with contract case between two businesses brought in Judge Michael Schneider's court in Sherman. Judge Schneider accepted Magistrate Judge Amos Mazzant's report and recommendation that the defendant's motion to transfer the case from Sherman to California be denied.
Notably, the plaintiff in this case is located in Plano, Texas, so while the defendant and its documents were in CA, the plaintiff and its were a few miles down the road from the courthouse in Texas. The other factors were similarly either split or neutral, thus Judge Mazzant recommended - and Judge Schneider agreed - that the motion be denied.
