Trading Techs. Int’l, Inc. v. eSpeed, Inc., No. 04 C 5312, Min. Order (N.D. Ill. Feb. 20, 2008) (Moran, Sen. J.).*

Judge Moran is scheduled to begin a two-day inequitable conduct bench trial this morning, and everything appears to be ready.  The deposition designations, exhibit lists and motions in limine have all been filed.  The eSpeed defendants have also filed motions to preclude Trading Technologies’ counsel from testifying and to enforce eSpeed’s understanding  of a stipulation (not surprisingly, the parties disagree as to what was stipulated) regarding the critical date.

Trial is scheduled to begin this morning at 10:30 am CDT.  Unfortunately, client obligations will prevent me from attending.  But I will continue to keep you updated based upon the Court’s rulings.
