In a response to a motion to dismiss part of the alleged patent infringement case by Mike Boyle (doing business as Surface Dynamic) and his son Christopher, GlasWeld agrees that an injunction cannot be entered on an expired patent, but the company’s attorney says the expiration of the patent does not impact subject matter jurisdiction.
Mike Boyle (doing business as Surface Dynamic) and his son Christopher have filed a motion to dismiss a portion of the lawsuit filed by GlasWeld over alleged patent infringement. The Boyles say one of the patents at the center of the case expired on April 5, 2016.
The 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.

Mike Boyle, doing business as Surface Dynamix, and his son, Christopher, have filed an emergency motion asking a judge for the U.S. District Court in Oregon to reconsider her recent order which imposed sanctions on them in the form of attorneys’ fees in the alleged patent infringement lawsuit. The Boyles also requested the judge reconsider their motion to dismiss the case writing, “the disputed order contains incorrect factual findings as well as errors of law that will result in manifest injustice to the defendants unless corrected.”
The judge has denied GlasWeld’s motion for default judgment, ordered Mike Boyle (doing business as Surface Dynamix) and his son Christopher Boyle to provide discovery information and decided on the construction of claims involved in the alleged patent infringement case.

Mike Boyle, doing business as Surface Dynamix, and Christopher Boyle, his son, have asked the U.S. District Court of Oregon, Eugene division, to disqualify GlasWeld’s counsel Javier Sobrado and his firm, Feldman Gale LLP, from serving as GlasWeld’s counsel. The Boyles claim that, “[the attorney] has knowingly and purposefully violated a fundamental precept of legal practice: the rule that an attorney for a litigant shall not also serve as a witness in the same litigation.” In response, GlasWeld gave notice that it opposes the Boyles’ motion in the alleged patent infringement case.
Mike Boyle, doing business as Surface Dynamix, has asked the U.S. District Court of Oregon, Eugene division, to issue an order “compelling the plaintiffs to allow the defendants the ability to inspect the alleged infringing products that are in the possession of the plaintiffs.” On the other side of the court, GlasWeld has asked for a default judgment against Mike Boyle and Christopher Boyle, his son, “because of their complete, consistent and unapologetic disregard of this court’s clear orders compelling them to comply with their discovery obligations.”
Mike Boyle’s pro-bono counsel, David H. Madden, has asked the court for an order allowing him to withdraw as counsel because “circumstances have arisen which comprise a current conflict of interest between Madden and defendant Boyle.” In their response to the request, GlasWeld’s attorneys write, “[I]f the court is inclined to grant Madden’s motion, GlasWeld requests that regardless of whether Mike Boyle obtains new counsel or proceeds pro se [representing himself], the court hold defendants to the same rules that apply to all other litigant and enforce its order compelling complete responses to GlasWeld’s discovery by July 2, 2014.”
