In re: Radmax, Ltd., No. 13-40462 (5th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Radmax petitioned for a writ of mandamus directing the district court to transfer this case from the Marshall Division of the Eastern District of Texas to the Tyler Division of that district. The court concluded that, under In re Volkswagen of Am., Inc., the facts and circumstances of this case were wholly grounded in the transferee forum (the Tyler Division), which was a clearly more convenient venue, and this case had no connection to the Marshall Division. Accordingly, the court granted the petition for writ of mandamus and the motion for stay of proceedings in the district court.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on October 30, 2013.
