False Marking Case Should Be Transferred to Defendant's Home Venue

The magistrate judge recommended granting defendant's alternative motion to transfer venue of plaintiff's false marking case to the defendant's home venue. "[T]he convenience of the parties strongly favors a transfer. . . . [P]laintiff is a qui tam plaintiff and he was not personally injured or involved in the alleged false marking. Defendants, on the other hand, are intimately involved in the claims and its principal place of business, as well as its witnesses and documents, are located in Missouri."
