Appellant-Defendant, Gulf Stream Coach, Inc. (Gulf Stream), appeals from the trial court’s denial of its motion to transfer venue on a claim of breach of warranty by Appellees-Plaintiffs, Joseph and Dawn Cronin (the Cronins).
Conclusion (slip op. at 8): We conclude that the trial court erred by denying Gulf Stream’s motion to transfer venue, and we remand this cause to the trial court with instructions to transfer venue to Elkhart County, pursuant to Indiana Trial Rule 75(A)(4).
Key Analysis (slip op. at 7): When a party moves a chattel to a county, whether from out-of-state or from another Indiana county, solely for purposes of litigation, that county does not become the county where the chattel is “regularly located and kept” under Rule 75(A)(2) and therefore is not a preferred venue under Rule 75.
