Cascades Computer Innovations, LLC v. SK hynix, Inc., No. 11 C 4356, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. May 25, 2012) (Lefkow, J.).

Judge Lefkow granted a sixteen month stay of this patent case pending defendants’ inter partes reexamination of the patent in suit.  The Court originally denied an unbounded stay.  But the Court held that a more limited sixteen month stay would simplify the issues in the case because the sole asserted claim was part of the reexam.  Furthermore, a sixteen month stay would not prejudice plaintiff Cascades Computer Innovation.
