Court Denies Ranir’s Motion to Transfer Venue

January 7, 2016 – The court denied Defendant Ranir, LLC’s Motion to Transfer Venue in its case against Plaintiff Medtech Products, Inc., finding that Ranir had “not demonstrated that the Western District of Michigan is a more convenient forum.” The patents-at-issue, U.S. Patent Nos. 7,658,193 and 8,316,859, are Medtech’s patents for an “interocclusal appliance and method.” The case remains pending before the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee, and is captioned 2:15-cv-02584.
