Trading places.

The First Department granted defendant's motion to change venue from Bronx County to Queens, in Espinoza v. Concordia Intrl. Forwarding Corp., decided on April 5, 2007. Plaintiff lives in Queens; she was injured and treated there; and defendant-employer conducts its business there. What about Bronx County? Defendant's employee, named individually in the action, lives there, but, even if he were found liable, his employer would indemnify him.
