Case of the Day: Parthenon Unified Memory Architecture LLC v. Apple Inc., 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 104575 (E.D. Tex. Aug. 9, 2016)


In a lawsuit in E.D. Tex., defendant Apple filed a motion to transfer venue to N.D. Cal. The plaintiff opposed, claiming inter alia that the evidence is located in Texas because Samsung manufactures Apple's chips in Austin, Texas. The court found that the factor weighed slightly against transfer, and denied the motion to transfer.


This is a fairly creative argument to raise a third party involvement in a venue fight.
