Trading Techs. Int’l., Inc. v. CQG, Inc., No. 05 C 4811, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. Feb. 17, 2009) (Moran, Sen. J.).

Judge Moran denied a motion to reconsider an earlier order continuing a summary judgment motion and staying the case pending the appeal of a related case, Trading Technologies v. eSpeed.*  The Court also ordered the parties to meet and confer regarding how to exchange defendants’ sensitive trading information.  The Court previously ordered defendants to work with plaintiff Trading Technologies ("TT") to determine how to produce defendants’ raw transaction data, which was required for a damages calculation.  The parties could not agree on how to exchange the information because of defendants’ unwillingness to provide  such sensitive data to TT without restrictions.  The Court ordered the parties to continue trying to resolve the issue and suggested various ways that the information could be exchanged without forcing defendants to provide all of their sensitive business information.
