AIRLIE OPPORTUNITY MASTER FUND, LTD., ARH MORTGAGE, INC., WDM FUND, L.P., STEVE Y. KHOSHABE, JOSEPH KHOSHABE AND JASON K. SCHIFFMAN, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: David G. Larimer United States District Judge
DECISION AND ORDER
On January 23, 2008, plaintiffs filed a motion seeking to transfer venue of all pending claims in this matter against the individual defendants, Joseph Khoshabe, Steve Khoshabe and Jason Schiffman, to the Northern District of Illinois. (Dkt. #158). Notwithstanding the Court's Motion Scheduling Order requiring the parties to submit responding papers by February 25, 2008 (Dkt. #162), there has been no opposition to plaintiffs' motion to transfer venue.
Upon review of the motion papers and the grounds cited therein, I find that a transfer of venue is appropriate. Plaintiff's motion (Dkt. #158) is hereby granted, and the action as against the three individual defendants is transferred to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1404.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
