Ray v. Heritage Care, Inc., 2006 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 50305 (D.D.C. 2006)

Plaintiff filed suit in federal court, District of Columbia, for wrongful discharge. The nursing home moved to dismiss or, in the alternative, to transfer the action to Maryland. The court granted the motion to transfer after finding that none of the Defendants are in DC, that the nursing home is in Maryland, that the acts complained of were in Maryland and that Plaintiff could have filed the action there. The court rejected Plaintiff’s argument that DC was an appropriate venue because the nursing home is within one mile the the DC border and that many of the nursing home residents are DC residents.
