Disability Suit Will Remain In California; Transfer To Georgia Not Warranted

SAN FRANCISCO - A California federal judge on Sept. 24 denied a disability plan's motion to transfer a disability claimant's suit to Georgia, where the claimant lived and was treated for his disability, after determining that the claimant's choice of forum is entitled to some deference and that none of the convenience factors weighs strongly in favor of transferring the suit (Mark Ennis v. Aetna Life Insurance Co. et al., No. 18-1617, N.D. Calif., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 163442).
