Judge Andrews denies request for single trial in multi-defendant case.

Judge Richard G. Andrews recently denied a plaintiff’s request for a single trial on infringement and invalidity against nine defendants. Eon Corp. IP Holdings LLC v. Flo TV Inc., C.A. No. 10-812-RGA (D. Del. Jan. 30, 2014). Judge Andrews explained that he did not think the nine defendants were properly joined in the first place, but in any event believed that it would be “completely unfair and prejudicial” and likely reversible error to force them to defend themselves in a single joint trial. The Court therefore scheduled nine separate five-day trials to be held between March and September of 2014.
