Plaintiff Newegg, Inc. brought a declaratory judgment action against Telecommunication Systems, Inc. ("TCS.") Newegg sought a declaration of non-infringement of TCS' U.S. Patent Nos. 6,891,811 and 7,355,990, relating to short codes used in text messaging on mobile devices. TCS moved to have the action transferred pursuant 28 USC Section 1404(a) to the District of Maryland where TCS maintains its corporate headquarters. Since there were no party or third party witnesses located in the Northern District of California, and the District of Maryland was closer to some of the third party witnesses that TCS identified, the case was transferred to the District of Maryland.
