A recent first district case, Glass v. Dot Transportation, makes ruling on forum non motions easier by drawing some bright lines to guide the decision, report Judge Dan Gillespie and law student intern Matthew Friedlander in the latest issue of Trial Briefs. First, they write, Glass makes clear that "filing suit in the county of plaintiff’s residence should rarely be disturbed [when that county] bears a substantial relation to the litigation." And the case also "firmly reinforces the notion that plaintiff’s choice of forum will almost never be disturbed if he or she chooses to bring suit in the county where the cause of action arose."
