DISH Seeks Federal Circuit Review of Judge Albright Transfer Denial After Motion Languished for Nearly One Year

May 31, 2021

The Federal Circuit has just received yet another mandamus petition challenging District Judge Alan D. Albright’s handling of a convenience transfer motion (2021-0148). On May 28, DISH sought the appellate court’s review of an April 20 decision declining to transfer a case filed by Broadband iTV, Inc. (6:19-cv-00716) to Colorado, which Judge Albright handed down nearly a year after the defendant filed its motion. The company’s petition notes the procedural impact of that delay and objects to the court’s analysis on a variety of substantive issues, many of which the Federal Circuit has previously flagged in reversals of other transfer rulings from Judge Albright.
