Callprod, Inc. v. GN Netcome, Inc., No. 06 C 4961, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. Nov. 1, 2010) (Kendall, J.).
Judge Kendall granted in part plaintiff Callprod's motion to stay determination regarding attorney's fees pending appeal of the underlying patent issues and the Court's determination as to whether the case was exceptional. The Court held that the Court's and the parties' resources were best preserved if all proceedings regarding attorney's fees were stayed until the Federal Circuit ruled on Callprod's appeal of the Court's grant of summary judgment of noninfringement. The Court, however, ordered Callprod to respond to defendants' bill of costs.
