Case Watch: In Re: Volkswagen of America

Yesterday, the Fifth Circuit heard en banc oral argument in In Re: Volkswagen of America.    Of interest in the case is this amicus brief, signed by 14 law professors, filed in support of respondents.  The issue concerns the proper transfer standard under 28 U.S.C. s1404, and Counsel of Record for the amicus is Professor Lonny S. Hoffman from the University of Houston. This link takes you to all the briefs.  --RR


Update:  Today's Texas Lawyer contains this writeup on the case (Hat Tip to Lonny Hoffman).
