VRCompliance LLC v. Homeaway, Inc.


(United States Fourth Circuit) – The district court did not abuse its discretion in staying plaintiffs’ action seeking declaratory relief that it was not committing violations asserted by defendants in an earlier filed state law action, pending the resolution of the earlier parallel state lawsuit filed by defendants, where plaintiffs had every opportunity to procure a federal forum by removing defendants’ first filed state suit rather than by bringing a separate federal action in an entirely separate federal district.
