Can an application initially assigned to one technology center subsequently be transferred to a different technology center?
Yes, but the transfer is at the Examiner's discretion. MPEP 903(a) states: "When a new application is received which, in the opinion of the primary examiner, does not belong to his or her TC, he or she may request transfer of it to another TC."
