Google Successfully Transfers Another AdWords Case to California–Parts Geek v. US Auto Parts

12 04 2010

Parts Geek, LLC v. U.S. Auto Parts Network, Inc., 2010 WL 1381005 (D.N.J. April 1, 2010)

Google has successfully transferred another trademark lawsuit over AdWords to its home court in California based on the mandatory venue clause in its AdWords contract. This is the latest success Google has had invoking its venue clause; similar recent victories include the TradeComet and Flowbee rulings. Indeed, the only case I can recall where Google has unsuccessfully invoked its AdWords venue selection clause is the Rosetta Stone case (see this transcript from Sept. 2009). (There may be other failed efforts, but I can’t recall them). As a result, the Rosetta Stone case remains on the rocket docket with a trial scheduled for next month, but it appears some of Google’s other litigation parties will be moving to California.
