Juniper Networks, Inc.'s ostensible litigation strategy to take advantage of the Rocket Docket as a plaintiff, but transfer claims that it must defend to a slower paced jurisdiction, appears to have been successful. As previously reported, the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, recently entertained Juniper Networks, Inc.'s Motion to sever GraphOn Corporation's Counterclaim and transfer it to the Eastern District of Texas. The Court issued GraphOn's marching orders on June 24, 2009, where the counterclaim will be transferred. For a discussion of Juniper's approach, see this article in Am Law Litigation Daily.
