IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF DELAWARE DRAGON INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LLC, Plaintiff, v. Civil Action No. 13-2065-RGA DIRECTV LLC, Defendant. MEMORANDUM The Motion for Provisional Entry of Appearance (D.I. 136) is DENIED. Interestingly, the Devlin Law Firm -Plaintiffs possible counsel- submits no proposed order with the motion. I do not think that is a coincidence. It is hard to figure out what sort of order the Devlin Law Firm would envision were I to grant its motion. That is because the Devlin Law Firm is essentially seeking an order to limit its potential liability for conduct it has not yet undertaken. I believe the Devlin Law Firm is seeking an advisory opinion on hypothetical conduct. I do not believe it is my role to grant prospective "immunity" to the Devlin Law Firm based on a proffer of its litigation plan if it enters an appearance in this case. IT IS SO ORDERED this j_ day of January 2016.
