Settlement does not Justify Vacating Summary Judgment of Noninfringement

The court denied the parties' motion to reopen judgment and vacate its prior summary judgment rulings of infringement following the parties' settlement. "It is not my practice to withdraw opinions on request of counsel. Not only is it impractical to do so in an electronic world, but it suggests that the opinion is the property of the parties, which it is not. Because the parties have failed to explain why the judgment should be vacated or the summary judgment opinion should be withdrawn, I am denying the motion."
