Judge Robinson denies motion to stay case so that plaintiff can find new counsel.

In a recent order, Judge Sue L. Robinson denied a plaintiff’s motion for a 90 day stay to permit it to select new counsel. In re: Automated Transaction LLC Patent Litig., No. 13-MD-2429-SLR (D. Del. Apr. 17, 2014). In its motion to stay, the plaintiff argued that a stay was appropriate and would allow it to retain new counsel who “will prepare a Motion before the Court as to why the forensic examination [of Defendants’ ATMs and networks] should take place before construction of any claim terms . . . .” (D.I. 144) Judge Robinson rejected that argument and explained that, “in light of the age and history of this MDL action, plaintiff’s motion for a stay is denied and defendants’ motion for the claim construction process to move forward promptly is granted.”
