Implus Footcare, LLC v. Maverick Sports Medicine, Inc. d/b/a Pro-Tec Athletics
ORDER granting 21 Motion to Stay pending final resolution of inter partes review of the asserted patent. Signed by Chief Judge James C. Dever III on 10/10/2016. (Briggeman, N.)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
MAVERICK SPORTS MEDICINE, INC.
d/b/a PRO-TECH ATHLETICS,
On June 22, 2016, Maverick Sports Medicine, Inc. d/b/a Pro-Tech Athletics ("defendant" or
"Maverick") moved to stay this action pending final resolution of inter partes review of the asserted
patent [D.E. 21]. On July 15, 2016, lmplus Footcare, LLC ("plaintiff' or "lmplus") responded in
opposition [D.E. 23]. On August 1, 2016, Maverick replied [D.E. 24].
The court has reviewed the record. A stay would not unduly prejudice lmplus and would
simplify the issues and the trial in this case. Moreover, the case is at a very early stage, discovery
is not complete, and a trial date has not been set. Accordingly, defendant's motion to stay [D.E. 21]
is GRANTED, and this action is STAYED pending final resolution of inter partes review of the
SO ORDERED. This _j_Q_ day of October 2016.
Chief United States District Judge
