Judge Denies Several Motions in GlasWeld-Boyle Case

gavel 2The judge overseeing the GlasWeld-Boyle case in the U.S. District Court of Oregon, Eugene division, has denied Mike and Christopher Boyles’ motions to set a trial date, disqualify GlasWeld’s attorney and exclude plaintiff’s evidence on damages. The Boyles have also filed a new motion asking the judge to strike GlasWeld’s motion for summary judgment.

“The arguments presented by defendants do not support disqualification but rather go to the admissibility of evidence and how much weight the court should afford such evidence,” writes the judge.

In their new motion, the Boyles have asked the judge for an expedited hearing and oral argument to discuss GlasWeld’s motion for summary judgment. They ask the judge to deny the motion.

“There are no legal grounds for the plaintiff to file a motion for summary judgment at this late juncture,” writes Mike Boyle (doing business as Surface Dynamix). “The court should, as a matter of law, strike plaintiffs motion.”

GlasWeld filed the alleged patent infringement lawsuit against Mike Boyle, doing business as Surface Dynamix, in the U.S. District Court of Oregon, Eugene division, in 2012. Mike Boyle’s son, Christopher, was later added as a defendant in the case.
