PATENT TROLL LOSES VENUE RULING (AMUSING)

docketreport.blogspot.com summarizes the decision and it is an amusing summary:

“[Plaintiff] alleges. . . that in 2003 [it] made the Eastern District of Virginia its principal place of business. . . . [Defendant] has provided the Court with a copy of complaints filed [in other actions] in which [plaintiff] alleges its principal place of business is in Chicago, Illinois. . . . [W]hen confronted with this documentation, [plaintiff] conceded to the Court that it was not actually until ‘sometime after 2006’ that [its] principal place of business was changed from Illinois to Virginia, although counsel could not tell the Court exactly when that transition occurred. . . . [B]ecause this district lacks significant contacts with the claim, Plaintiff’s choice of forum will not be given great weight.”
