Durie Tangri's Mike Page Successfully Argues Forum Selection Clause and Wins Motion to Transfer

February 4, 2011

On February 4, 2011, the Court handed down an opinion in Evans, et al. v. Linden Research, Inc. et al. granting Linden Lab’s motion to transfer the case from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to the Northern District of California.  Linden Lab was sued for allegedly depriving users of ownership rights to their virtual property.  This decision marks a significant victory for Mike, who convinced the judge—who originally handed down an order against Linden Research in Brag v. Linden—to uphold Linden Research’s forum selection clause in its revised terms of service agreement.  Please click here to read the order.
