Papst Licensing GmbH & Co. KG v. Lattice Semiconductor Corp., C.A. No. 14-1375- LPS- CJB, August 3, 2015

Burke, M. J. Motion to stay is denied without prejudice to renew.

Defendant seeks a stay pending resolution of its motions to dismiss or transfer to California. The court expects to resolve defendants’ transfer motion in the near future along with similar motions in related cases.  Those decisions will come well before defendant is required to provide more substantive responses.  It will furthermore permit the three related cases to proceed on the same schedule until the venue issue is addressed.  This outcome prejudices neither party.  The court will address the stay issue after the venue issue has been decided.
