Doshier et al v. Facebook Inc
ORDER granting 43 motion to transfer; and directing the Clerk to transfer this case immediately to the Northern District of California. Signed by Judge Kristine G. Baker on 1/7/2020. (jbh)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
WILLIAM F. DOSHIER and DOTSTRATEGY, CO.
Case No. 4:18-cv-00628-KGB
Before the Court is an unopposed and consent motion to transfer filed by defendant
Facebook, Inc. (“Facebook”) (Dkt. No. 43). Facebook requests that the Court transfer this case to
the Northern District of California (Id.). Facebook states that plaintiffs William F. Doshier and
dotStrategy, Co. (“dotStrategy”) have represented that they consent to the transfer and do not
oppose this motion (Id., ¶ 1). Facebook states that this case should be transferred to the Northern
District of California pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a) because plaintiffs have consented to the
transfer and the parties’ forum-selection agreement designates the United States District Court for
the Northern District of California as the exclusive federal forum for resolution of disputes relating
to or arising out of their contractual relationship (Id., ¶ 2). For good cause shown, the Court grants
Facebook’s motion (Dkt. No. 43). The Court directs the Clerk to transfer this case immediately to
the Northern District of California.
So ordered this the 7th day of January, 2020.
Kristine G. Baker
United States District Judge
