Andre J. Webb and Francis V. Bovio Obtain Successful Transfer of Case Out of Philadelphia County
Andre J. Webb and Francis V. Bovio obtained the successful transfer of a case from Philadelphia County to Delaware County via Preliminary Objections to a Complaint for improper venue. The Complaint alleged that their client, a Pennsylvania business entity, regularly conducted business in Philadelphia County as a basis for proper venue in Philadelphia County. Plaintiff argued that the client received funds from a Philadelphia County entity for its business operations as a basis for venue. Following a court-ordered discovery period and several oral arguments on the issue, a Philadelphia County judge transferred the matter from Philadelphia County, as Andre and Francis showed that the quality and quantity of their client’s contacts with Philadelphia County were incidental to its operations, and the Court held that the client did not regularly conduct business in Philadelphia County.
