Date Filed Document Text
March 26, 2015 Opinion or Order Filing 201 OPINION AND ORDER: re: 39 MOTION to Dismiss for Lack of Jurisdiction filed by Fairchild Controls Corporation. As there is no relationship between Plaintiffs' negligence claim against Fairchild Controls and New York, this Court lacks personal jurisdiction over Fairchild Controls. Nevertheless, dismissal is not necessary. Rather, "[f]or the convenience of parties and witnesses, in the interest of justice, a district court may transfer any civil action to any other distr ict or division where it might have been brought or to any district or division to which all parties have consented." 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a); accord Daniel v. Am. Bd. of Emergency Med., 428 F.3d 408, 435 (2d Cir. 2005) ("Courts enjoy cons iderable discretion in deciding whether to transfer a case in the interest of justice."). Transfer to the Southern District of Texas is appropriate here. "A 'compelling reason' for transfer is generally acknowledged when a plainti ff's case, if dismissed, would be time-barred on refiling in the proper forum." Daniel, 428 F.3d at 435. Here, by letter dated March 25, 2015, Plaintiffs represent that, should their claim against Fairchild Controls be dismissed, refiling t his action would be time-barred in Delaware and Maryland, where Fairchild Controls, respectively, was incorporated and operates its principal place of business. Furthermore, by letter dated March 25, 2015, Fairchild Controls indicates that it consent s to jurisdiction and venue in the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division. For the foregoing reasons, Fairchild Controls' motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction is DENIED. The Clerk of Court is respectfully directed to close t he motion at Docket No. 39 and to transfer this matter to the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a). SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Lorna G. Schofield on 3/26/2015) (ama)
