A federal district court transferred a patent infringement suit filed by a non-practicing entity incorporated in that judicial district because the district did not have enough connections to the alleged infringement. The court held that a non-practicing entity plaintiff is not entitled to the heavy presumption to retain a suit in the plaintiff’s home forum. Rather, the court held that the suit should be transferred to the defendants’ home forum, the location of the alleged infringing acts, the relevant documents, and the majority of the witnesses.
