Court Denies UCB’s Motion to Transfer Venue

November 4, 2016 – The court denied Defendant UCB, Inc.’s Motion to Transfer Venue to the District of Delaware in a case filed by Plaintiff Allergan Sales, LLC in the Eastern District of Texas.  Allergan alleges infringement of its patent, U.S. Patent No. 7,921,999, entitled “Peelable pouch for transdermal patch and method for packaging.”  The court found the analysis to weigh neither for nor against transfer, and thus found that UCB had failed to meet its burden to show that Delaware would be “a clearly more convenient forum.”  The case remains in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas and is number 2:15-cv-01001.
