Apple Inc. v. Motorola, Inc., No. 11C 8540, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. Jun. 5, 2012) (Posner, J. sitting by designation).
Judge Posner summarily denied ten motions – seven by defendants (collectively “Motorola”) and three by plaintiffs (collectively “Apple”) – regarding the parties noninfringement and invalidity arguments. The Court explained that it omitted its reasoning because “time is short” with less than a week to go before trial. But the Court invited renewed Fed. R. Civ. P. 50 motions if a party’s legal basis is refuted at trial.
