ILD Corp. v. New Link Network, LLC, ___ So. 3d ___, 40 Fla. L. Weekly D424 (Fla. 2d DCA February 13, 2015)
The defendant moved to transfer venue from Pinellas County to St. Johns Count based upon Section 47.122, Florida Statutes, which adopts the doctrine of forum non conveniens. The trial court denied the motion based upon the premise that the place of payment rule did not apply in this case, but the applicability of this rule was relevant to the propriety, rather than the convenience, of the plaintiff’s choice of forum. The appellate court reversed because the trial court either failed to conduct an analysis under Section 47.122 or conducted a flawed analysis by relying upon an irrelevant factor.
