Andrews, J.  Defendant’s motion to disqualify Tensegrity Law Group is granted.

Two of the attorneys in that firm were previously employed by Weil Gotshal & Manges where the represented defendant in seven patent cases and a trade secret case focused on NAND flash technology.  The court finds that the current representation is substantially related to the prior NAND flash and trade secret cases. The law firm is disqualified.
