Its Last Case Transferred Out of the Western District of Texas, USTA Technology Turns to the Eastern District

June 8, 2024

This past December, the suit that USTA Technology, LLC filed in the Western District of Texas against Alphabet (Google) in November 2022 was dismissed with prejudice from its transferee district, the Northern District of California. Before granting Google its requested convenience transfer, District Judge Xavier Rodriguez denied the plaintiff’s motion for leave to conduct venue-related discovery, noting that “[a]n exhaustive search of Google’s activity, personnel, and suppliers in the Western District of Texas for the purpose of determining the relative convenience is not an efficient use of judicial resources”. For its five-pack of new cases, one filed against each of ASUSTek (4:24-cv-00512), AT&T (AT&T Mobility) (4:24-cv-00513), Lenovo (4:24-cv-00515), LG Electronics (LGE) (4:24-cv-00516), and Samsung (4:24-cv-00517) over the same patent, USTA Technology has turned to the Eastern District of Texas.
