PPC Broadband, Inc. v. Corning Gilbert Inc., 5-11-cv-00761 (NYND May 20, 2015, Order) (Sharpe, J.)
Institution of IPR Excluded from Evidence
The court granted plaintiff's motion in limine to preclude evidence of the institution of inter partes review. "There is no claim that any relevant final decision has been made. Any probative value in the fact that [defendant] has chosen to take advantage of other avenues and forums is substantially outweighed by the danger of misleading the jury and [a] waste of time involved in explaining to the jury what is involved in such proceedings and the natural counterclaim that that such proceedings are Defendants’ attempt to vexatiously delay and multiply proceedings and impose costs on Plaintiff."
