The magistrate judge recommended denying in part defendant's motion to dismiss and rejected defendant's argument that "the court should dismiss all of the claims of the patents-in-suit because [plaintiff] admitted that the claims it asserted in [an earlier case] were 'representative.'. . . [T]here could have been no final decision on the validity of claims that were withdrawn, not asserted, or never litigated in [the] first case -- that is, there could have been no final decision on 'the identical question' of the validity of claims that were not presented to the jury in the first case."
