The question was whether a party could require its opponent to travel overseas to defend two depositions.
Judge Mazzant granted this motion to transfer in a trademark / trade dress case.
Plaintiff won four of its seven challenges to this expert’s opinions.
Same plaintiff – did a transfer to Austin really get the defendant a stay?
In this case, the ability compel the third-party witnesses to appear decided the matter.
These orders are always worth studying.
The court found that the defendant owned and controlled the requested source code and that the third party was obligated to provide defendant with the code.
The court noted that reexam had been granted for three of the patents at issue.
Well, this is an interesting fact situation.
Mostly limine with a side of motion to exclude and a doggie bag of MSJ and expert rulings.
