Case No.: 2:20-cv-593-FtM-38MRM LYMAN PRODUCTS CORPORATION, RICK RANZINGER and EDWARD WYTRYCH, Defendants. / OPINION AND ORDER1 Before the Court is Defendants’ Motion to Transfer Action to Related First-Filed Case Pursuant to Local Rule 1.04(b), or in the Alternative, to Transfer This Action to the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut (Doc. 9). Plaintiff Jay Hirshberg does not oppose the Motion, and his counsel submitted a proposed Agreed Order Transferring Action to the Honorable John L. Badalamenti (Doc. 12). The parties agree this case shares a common question of fact with a first-filed case pending before Judge Badalamenti, styled M Seven Holdings LLC v. Lyman Products Corporation, No. 20:cv433-JLB-NPM. The Court finds that transfer to Judge Badalamenti will avoid duplication in the prosecution and resolution of this case. See Local Rule 1.04(b).
