NuVasive (NSDQ:NUVA) won a court order transferring to California a patent infringement lawsuit filed by Medtronic (NYSE:MDT), where the case can proceed alongside a similar lawsuit already pending there.

Indiana District Court Judge Christopher Nuechterlein granted NuVasive's motion for a transfer, agreeing with the spinal devices maker that it would "be in the interest of justice and more convenient for the parties and witnesses" for the pair of cases to pass through the same court.
