Moreover, defendants and the third party defendant indicated that they have no objection to the case being transferred to the Eastern District.
In the circumstances, the parties are directed to show cause, on or before June 17, 2003, why this action should not be transferred to the Eastern District of New York pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1404(a).
