Worlds.com and NCsoft lawsuit moved to California courts


Worlds.com has moved its lawsuit against NCsoft from Eastern Texas district court to Northern California, reports Patent Arcade.

As of May 4, the alleged infringements suit will be moved because the Texas Supreme Court issued a ruling that "limits the discretion available to a trial court to determine if a case should be dismissed if an adequate alternate forum exists."

This means that the case has no ties to Texas, and since the patent was filed in California, it is a more appropriate area to convene the lawsuit.

Worlds.com filed suit against NCSoft back in January for alleged patent infringement on multiplayer virtual environments.
