llinois Corporation Research LLC v. Best Buy Stores, L.P., No. 10 C 4298 Slip. Op. (N.D. Ill. Sep. 12, 2011) (Zagel, J.). 

Judge Zagel denied plaintiff Illinois Computer Research’s (“ICR”) motion to reconsider the Court’s opinion granting summary judgment in this patent case for the following reasons:

·       ICR’s argument that defendant Best Buy’s agreement was based upon an improper definition of “affiliate” was improper for reconsideration because it was a new argument; 

·       ICR’s argument that Singapore law controlled was also new and, therefore, improper.
