Sarah Chapin Columbia was quoted in The National Law Journal on June 15, for a story about an increase in motions to transfer patent infringement cases out of the plaintiff-friendly Eastern District of Texas in the wake of two decisions by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit that chastised the Texas federal court for not transferring cases. Ms. Columbia noted that, before the Federal Circuit rulings, she often advised clients that fighting for a transfer out of the district would not be money well spent. Now she is advising clients to try transferring when they can make a case that parties or evidence are concentrated outside of the Eastern District of Texas. "I suspect we're all going to be thinking of that possibility [more often]," Ms. Columbia said. The NLJ story also appeared in Law.com and Corporate Legal Times.
