Speedier Resolution by Rocket Docket Does Not Warrant Retention of Venue

In granting defendant's motion to transfer, the court rejected plaintiff's argument that the district's "rocket docket" warranted retention of venue. "[A]lthough it may be true that Plaintiff will experience a speedier resolution of its action in this district, the Court cannot ignore the fact that the interest of justice remains on the side of transfer. . . . [I]f the Court were to give such a consideration commanding weight, all cases filed in this district would be effectively immune from transfer."
