The judge overseeing the GlasWeld-Boyle case in the U.S. District Court of Oregon, Eugene division, has denied Mike and Christopher Boyles’ request to strike GlasWeld’s motion for partial summary judgment. In response, the Boyles filed a motion for an extension of time to respond to GlasWeld’s supplemental memorandum for partial summary judgement.
In her latest decision, Judge Ann Aiken says Mike Boyle’s motion to bifurcate, or split the alleged patent infringement trial into two parts, is “premature,” but she gave leave for him to renew the motion at a later date.
Judge Ann Aiken has denied motions by Mike Boyle and Christopher Boyle (Mike’s son) to compel inspection of products and compel a former Intellectual Patent Insurance Corp. (IPISC) employee to attend depositions over the alleged patent infringement case pending the court’s ruling on claim construction. The judge also finds it “reasonable and approves of plaintiff’s (GlasWeld’s) preference to confer with defendants only through written communications.”
Judge Ann Aiken has stayed GlasWeld’s motion to compel Deschutes Manufacturing & Consulting to produce documents in response to a subpoena in the company’s case against Mike Boyle, doing business as Surface Dynamix, and his son Christopher Boyle over alleged patent infringement. In her brief decision issued Monday, the judge also referred the case to Magistrate Judge Thomas Coffin for mediation and settlement.
A judge for the U.S. District Court of Oregon has granted GlasWeld’s motions to strike several of Mike Boyle and Christopher Boyle’s affirmative defenses in the alleged patent infringement case and ordered that Christopher Boyle’s answer to the complaint and his attached exhibits be placed under seal and designated as confidential. The judge also denied Christopher Boyle’s motion to strike and granted his motion to reset the scheduling order.
