AT&T Intellectual Property I, L.P., et al.  v. Cox Communications, Inc., et al.C.A. No. 14-1106 - GMS, July 9, 2015

Sleet, J. Defendants’ motion to transfer venue to the Northern district of Georgia is denied.

Although defendants claim in a sworn statement that all of the Cox entities is Cox’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, plaintiff has produced several inconsistent statements in this District that their principle places of businesses are located in their regional homes where they are licensed.  The court finds defendant acted in bad faith in taking inconsistent positions and narrowly tailors the remedy to denying the motion to transfer.  Even without applying judicial estoppel, the court reaches the same result.
