Silver State Stipulates to a Transfer from Nevada to the Northern District of California

June 15, 2017

In the wake of the US Supreme Court’s TC Heartland decision, Silver State Intellectual Technologies, Inc. has conceded that venue is no longer proper in Nevada for a suit that it brought against Facebook (2:17-cv-00643) in March 2017. Facebook had filed a motion a week before the Supreme Court opinion on venue issued, challenging the sufficiency of the pleading in Silver State’s complaint and preserving its right to dismissal should the then-pending decision go the petitioner’s way. It did, and Silver State quickly stipulated to transfer to the Northern District of California, having filed an amended complaint buttressing its infringement allegations with more information, including claim charts. The Nevada court granted the stipulation on June 7.
