Legal definition of venue
General Civil Litigation Legal Terminology

venue

1
The geographic area in which a court has jurisdiction. A change of venue is a change or transfer of a case from one judicial district to another.
In high profile criminal cases the original venue may be considered not the best venue due to possible prejudice stemming from pre-trial publicity in the area or public sentiment about the case which might impact upon potential jurors.
It is left to a judge's discretion (of the court where the lawsuit was originally filed) whether to change venue.
