AVM Technologies, LLC v. Intel Corporation, C.A. No. 15-33 – RGA-MPT, May 3, 2016.
Thynge, C. M. J. Plaintiff’s request for documents in discovery is granted in part and denied in part.
Plaintiff requests that defendant search its database for documents containing the following terms: charge sharing, power race, contention, and short circuits and their synonyms. Plaintiff justifies this discovery on the basis of defendant’s reliance on a particular processor as prior art. It seeks documents on products that are not accused and that predate the accused products. Plaintiff accepted defendants offer to further search a previously searched database. Defendant is transferring potentially searchable contents of this database to a search capable platform to perform the keyword searches requested. Plaintiff’s request for defendant to search databases devoted to specific projects is denied since there are no known databases that contain comprehensive documents for prior art.
