Magistrate Judge David Nuffer – Motion to Amend granted; Motion to Implead granted

PHILLIP M. ADAMS & ASSOCIATES, L.L.C., a Utah Limited Liability Company, Plaintiff, v. DELL, INC., FUJITSU LIMITED, FUJITSU COMPUTER SYSTEMS CORP., MPC COMPUTERS, LLC, AND SONY ELECTRONICS INC., Defendants.

Civil No. 1:05-CV-64 TS

United States District Court for the District of Utah, Northern Division

2006 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 92658

December 21, 2006

Magistrate Judge David Nuffer

Plaintiff Phillip M. Adams & Associates, L.L.C. alleges the Defendants have infringed on three of its patents related to errors in floppy disk controllers. Plaintiff alleges the infringement occurs in several specified models of Defendants’ computers. Defendants deny the allegations and claim the patents are invalid.

 

Plaintiff seeks to amend its amended complaint, charging defendants with infringement of two additional patents, and states: “the proposed addition of two patents that cover the same subject matter as the patents-in-suit would simply not expand this litigation to any significant degree.”  Further, Sony seeks to implead six third-party defendants; and one of those prospective third-party defendants seeks to intervene.

 

Magistrate Judge Nuffer granted the Plaintiff’s Motion to Amend and granted Sony’s Motion to Implead Third Parties (for all six of the third-parties).  The Motion to Intervene filed by the prospective third-party was held moot (since they were brought in through the Motion to Implead).

 

There will soon be a hundred lawyers working on this case.
