By Memorandum Opinion entered by The Honorable Richard G. Andrews in In re Chanbond, LLC, Patent Litigation, Civil Action No. 15-842-RGA (D.Del. April 16, 2021) (consolidated), the Court denied Defendants’ motion to reopen discovery to investigate whether Plaintiff Chanbond has standing in the suit given a dispute between Chanbond’s former owner, Chanbond, and Chanbond’s present owner concerning assignment of the patents-in-suit. In denying Defendants’ motion, the Court, among other things, noted that standing must be present at the time suit is brought and found that Chanbond owned the right, title and interest in and to the patents-in-suit at the time of the filing, still owns such rights, and has standing to bring the suit. Id. at *5-7.
