ORDER denying without prejudice 51 Motion to Transfer Venue for the Consolidation of Cases. Signed by Magistrate Judge David S. Cayer on 2/13/2014. (tmg)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
CIVIL ACTION NO.: 3:13-cv-00412-RJC-DSC
ANDRITZ HYDRO CORP. f/k/a VA TECH
HYDRO USA CORP. AND ANDRITZ
PPL MONTANA, LLC and PPL ENERGY
THIS MATTER is before the Court on Defendants’ “Motion to Transfer Venue for the
Consolidation of Cases” (document #51) and the parties’ briefs and exhibits.
This matter has been referred to the undersigned Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 636(b)(1), and is now ripe for the Court’s consideration.
Defendants’ Motion to Transfer Venue is based solely upon their claim that Plaintiffs
violated the terms of a tolling agreement. The issues involving the tolling agreement and the
proper venue for this matter are squarely presented in Defendants” “Motion for Partial Summary
Judgment to Enforce Tolling Agreement” (document #37) and “Plaintiffs’ Motion to Enjoin
Prosecution of Later-Filed Action” (document #49).
These Motions are pending before the
presiding District Judge.
Accordingly, Defendants’ “Motion to Transfer Venue for the Consolidation of Cases”
(document #51) is denied as duplicative of the other pending Motions. Denial is without
prejudice to Defendants’ right to renew their Motion to Transfer Venue once the other Motions
The Clerk is directed to send copies of this Order to counsel for the parties; and to the
Honorable Robert J. Conrad, Jr.
