KBLLP Defeats Motion To Transfer to Northern California

On February 25, 2021, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Sherman Division, denied Defendant HP Inc.’s Motion to Transfer to the Northern District of California.  

In its motion, HP argued that the case belongs in Northern California because HP is headquartered there and according to HP no witnesses or evidence existed in East Texas.  KT Imaging USA, LLC v. HP Inc., C.A. No. 4:20-cv-337, Dkt. No. 19.  KTI disagreed and opposed, pursuing discovery in the process.  The Court considered the parties’ briefs and denied HP’s motion.  After evaluating both the private interest and public interest factors, the Court concluded that East Texas is more convenient for most of the parties and witnesses.

KT Imaging USA, LLC is represented by Kheyfits Belenky LLP.
