By Memorandum Order entered by The Honorable Richard G. Andrews in Round Rock Research LLC v. Dole Food Company Inc., Civil Action No. 11-1239-RGA (D.Del., April 6, 2012), Round Rock Research LLC v. Gap Inc., Civil Action No. 11-1241-RGA (D.Del., April 6, 2012), and Round Rock Research LLC v. Hanesbrands Inc., Civil Action No. 11-1242-RGA (D.Del., April 6, 2012), the Court granted defendants’ motions to stay pending reexamination of the patents-in-suit. After analyzing the three pertinent factors the Court must consider in evaluating a motion to stay, the Court in its reasoning stated that “[c]onsidering all the circumstances, this seems pretty close to the classic case for granting a stay pending reexamination. The prejudice to the Plaintiff, including any tactical disadvantage is not great, and the other factors all clearly weigh in favor of granting the stay.” Id. at 4.
