U.S. DISTRICT COURT
N.D. OF ALABAMA
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
P-G INDUSTRIES, INC.,
PRYOR GIGGEY CO.,
CIVIL ACTION NO.
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
Plaintiff, Walter Andrews, had a perfect right to file his
above-entitled Title VII action in the Southern Division of the
Northern District of Alabama, where it now resides.
42 U.S.C., §
He could have filed it in Mobile in the Southern
District of Alabama, under this expansive venue statute.
Although venue is proper in the Southern Division of the
Northern District of Alabama, the action could have just as easily
been brought in the Eastern Division of the Northern District of
Alabama. Because both parties reside in the Eastern Division, with
the only contact to the Southern Division being the location of the
lawyers, this court balances the factors in 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a),
and finds that
“for the convenience of the parties and witnesses
and in the interest of justice”, the case should be transferred to
the Eastern Division.
Accordingly, the motion of defendant, P-G
Industries, Inc., d/b/a Pryor Giggey Co., to transfer the case is
GRANTED, and the above-entitled case is TRANSFERRED to the Eastern
Division of the Northern District of Alabama.
DONE this 14th day of June, 2013.
WILLIAM M. ACKER, JR.
